Around The World With James Bond

 Around The World With James Bond

We all know the drill. Slick, tailor-made suits, a deadly mission, and a gorgeous companion. On the 24th of October, SPECTRE, the new James Bond film was released. Over the past 53 years, 007 has given us compelling inspirations for travel. Each of the James Bond films gives you a reason to get your passport in hand and fly away – without any requirements to wrestle bad guys over a giant shark tank, though. We’re going to take you on a few of the trips where some of the most well-known Bond films were shot. 

Dr No (1962)

Dr. No

Much of 007’s first missions took place on the north coast of Jamaica. The scenes with Andress as “Honey Rider” were filmed at Dunn’s River Falls and at the Laughing Waters Beach where her emergence from the sea in a white bikini would come to define the ultimate Bond-Girl glamour. His home, Goldeneye, was where he wrote 14 of the books. It still sits at Oracabessa and has now been reimagined as a luxury hotel. You can spend the night at this Fleming Villa where prices start at $5,500 a night. Other properties on the location begin at $620 a night. 

From Russia With Love (1963)

From Russia With Love

This was Sean Connery’s second outing. The Beretta makes use of Istanbul and Venice but the story quickly progresses on to the Orient Express. The scheduled train no longer exists, but its luxury successor, the Venice Simplon-Orient-Express will be running a rare Istanbul-Bucharest-Budapest-Venice trip. The starting price is £8,559 per person and this includes staying in hotels in Romanian and Hungarian capitals, but excluding flights. 

Goldfinger (1964) 

Goldfinger

This was certainly one of the classics of the James Bond franchises and is based on an assault on For Knox and its gold reserves. It’s set in Kentucky. The actual stronghold appears in the film and the state’s biggest city, Louisville, and Lexington also grace the screen. “America as you like it” offers tourists a 14-night “Bourbon, Bluegrass, and Blues” road trip that charts these states in detail. From £1,260 a head including flights, car hire, and accommodation, you can live the James Bond landscape from 1964. 

Thunderball (1965)

Thunderball

The crime syndicate SPECTRE, involves stolen nuclear weapons. The syndicate drags Bond to the Bahamas for a film partly shot on New Providence Island and Love Beach. Thomas Cook Signature offers Bond fanatics an experience at Love Beach at Sandals Royal Bahamian Spa Resort. It’s s seven-night, all-inclusive holiday featuring flights from Heathrow with transfers. Cost: £2,553 per person. 

Die Another Day (2002)

Die another day

This was Pierce Brosnan’s last stand. The film was set in North Korea and Iceland. A special scene with Halle Berry striding out of the sea in Cadiz, an excellent impression of Havana, was stand out. This tiny sliver of a city is Spain at its most historic and is definitely worth adventuring in. A three-night stay at the four-star Hotel Monte Puertatierra including a flight from Heathrow to Jerez starts at £269 a head. 

Casino Royale (2006)

Casino Royale

Casino Royale shone brightest at Lake Como. This movie introduced Daniel Craig as the new James Bond. This proved a grittier version of Bond which haunted Venice and Madagascar, but it shone brightest at Lake Como where 007 recovered from the torture amid the 18th-century majesty of Villa del Balbianello. A one-bedroom can be rented through Lake Como Homes for a four-night stay that starts at €1,350 without flights. 

Quantum of Solace (2008) 

Quantum of solace

This film saw the journey through Italy, Austra and Haiti with eco-villain Dominic Greene being left to die in the Bolivian portion of the Atacama Desert. Sequences were also filmed across the Chilean border. “Explore” (explore.co.uk) provides snapshots of this arid location on both sides of the frontier via “the Atacama to Machu Picchu”. It is a 19-day, three-country group trek venturing into Peru. Prices start at £4,290 per person including flights. 

Skyfall (2012)

SkyFall

This Oscar-winning film revisited Istanbul and also flirted with a few scenes in Shanghai. Featuring shots also include the island of Hashima, just off Nagasaki whose abandoned mine and empty buildings made a ghostly atmosphere for the bad guy, Raoul Silva. These locations can be visited from Nagasaki via Gunkanjima Concierge and offers a 17-day “Ultimate Kyushu” private tour spending three days in the city starting at £3,165 per person including flights. 

SPECTRE (2015)

Spectre

This season’s most-anticipated film starts with a band by turning the camera on Day of the Dead, Mexico’s tribute to its dearly departed. If you want to learn more about this festivity, you can partake in a “Day of the Dead Culture and History Tour” by Rainbow Tours. This nine-day group trip will be travelling to Oaxaca and guests stay in a family home to get a closer glimpse into the rituals involved. The cost starts at £2,795 per person including flights.
