The exhibition that all James Bond fans MUST see!

Fans of the British institution that is James Bond will all have their own personal favourites when it comes to the many movies in the franchise, stunts, cars, Bond actors and even Bond girls. The Bond in Motion exhibition is a great way to indulge in your inner Bond.

Situated at the London Film Museum very close to Covent Garden, the Bond in Motion exhibition is the largest official collection of James Bond vehicles. Observant types will enjoy getting up close and personal with iconic contraptions from all films across the vast back catalogue of Bond films.

From Octopussy in 1983 – Acrostar BD-5J Jet.
Ski-Doo Snow Machine.
It’s a great exhibition to see because not only are the vehicles immaculately presented and original but for relative latecomers to the Bond world like me, it was a great way to see and learn about some of the older exhibits as I haven’t seen all of the films…yet!

A few items from Skyfall.

In the exhibition the displays include the classic Bond car, the Aston Martin DB5, Goldfinger’s Rolls-Royce Phantom 3 and the Lotus Esprit S1 submersible from The Spy Who Loved Me. Displayed with more modest 007 transport options such as the Citroën 2CV and the Crocodile Submarine the exhibit also has aircraft, boats and motorcycles. The vehicles play an integral role in all 23 movies and continue to ensure that Bond remains the premier Spy film franchise in the cinema world.

A few Passport and ID props from previous Bond films.

Entry to the exhibition costs £14.50 for Adults and is well worth it when you consider the amount of history behind the Bond name. Now, I’m off to enjoy a martini. You guessed it – shaken, not stirred!
