James Bond's London: A Reference Guide to Locations
A travel/reference guide to locations from the life of Ian Fleming, his novels, and the “official” EON Productions films (through 1999's
The World Is Not Enough). The book was originally scheduled to be released in 2000, but Giblin's research turned up so much information that the book was divided into two volumes. The second volume, titled James Bond's Britain, was never published.
Now you can follow in the footsteps of the most famous secret agent of all time — from the exclusive gentlemen's clubs of St James's to the breathtaking skyscrapers of Docklands, Isle of Dogs.
In this comprehensive reference guide to over 250 London locations you will:
