The Experience

 

This half-day experience allows you to fully immerse yourself in the world of James Bond. 

Start your day with a light brunch at the Taj Hotel St James equipped with a Martini (Shaken Not Stirred of course) in true Bond style. Then, after an action-packed afternoon, take in the view as a true 007 with a second Martini- you've earned it! Remember Bond always start with a Martini and ends with a Martini, soft drinks & Mocktinis (Mocktails Martinis) available for those who are not into the full Martinis swing! You are going behind the scenes of the world’s most successful movie franchise…and playing the leading role!

This incredible experience makes the dreams of every James Bond fan come true, including a splash of original Floris and his preferred tipple of a Vesper at one of Ian Flemming’s favourite London hotel bars. As you immerse yourself into the cloak and dagger world of espionage, you’ll pick-up some handy counter surveillance skills too. It wouldn’t be a day in the life of Bond without a visit to ‘Q’, so you’ll also have a session booked at our select London gun club for some target practice using the preferred 007 weapons, such as the Walter PPK.

During this exhilarating day you will learn the real stories behind the world of 007, as we take you through the London scenes where Bond was born and immortalised in celluloid. This experience is perfect for adventurers, thrill-seekers and makes a unique gift for fans of James Bond.
