Hidden in the popular Covent Garden area you'll find the London Film Museum which is currently hosting an exhibition called "Bond in Motion" (yes, you got it right, it's about James Bond a.k.a. 007). Despite the entrance ticket which may sound a bit expensive especially when you're not so sure about what you're going to see, the exhibition was amazing as it hosts all of the vehicles used by James Bond in the films. It doesn't matter whether you're familiar or not with the films, as each vehicle is accompanied by a sequence playing in the background and showing you how it was used in the film, enlightening even who doesn't really remember that particular film or films, or hasn't seen it/them at all. This is really a great exhibition whether you're a film bluff or cars' lover.


Bonus tip: look for vouchers or whether you're entitled to concessions, as this may allow you to save something on the entrance ticket.

I loved this! Definitely worth it for Bond fans. It is much larger downstairs than it looks, and they have set up cars from the main sequences from the films. The scene plays in the background, showing how the car starred. If you're stumping up for the (expensive!) entrance ticket I would definitely get the audio guide as well- well worth the extra cash to hear the stunt driver perspective and glean extra information. Highly recommended if the price doesn't put you off.
