On September 30, the new James Bond film No Time To Die will be released in UK cinemas after delays due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Holiday lettings company, Holiday Cottages, has combined a list of 10 filming locations from across the Bond franchise.

1. Cairngorms National Park, Aviemore, Scotland
As seen in: No Time to Die (2021)

Scotland features in many Bond films and Bond spends time there himself, as his family home as seen in Skyfall lies within the Highlands. In the new 2021 film, a thrilling car chase scene on the banks of Loch Laggan in the Cairngorms National Park can be expected.

2. Whitehall, London, England
As seen in: No Time to Die (2021)

Home to a number of ministries and departments including Downing Street, the Ministry of Defence, Cabinet Office, and Horse Guards, Whitehall in Westminster serves as the centre of the British government. No Time To Die shows Bond walking and driving an Aston Martin Vantage down the streets.

3. Vauxhall Cross SIS Building, London, England
As seen in: GoldenEye (1995), The World Is Not Enough (1999), Die Another Day (2002), Skyfall (2012) and Spectre (2015).

The real headquarters of the British Secret Intelligence Service, also known as the MI6 Building, is featured in multiple James Bond films. The southwestern part of London is where the SIS building sits on the banks of the River Thames. It is one of London’s most visited landmarks. In 2015’s Spectre, the building was demolished so it won’t make an appearance in No Time To Die but it does still remain one of the most iconic filming locations of the franchise.

4. Glen Coe, Scottish Highlands, Scotland
As seen in: Skyfall (2012)

Glen Coe in the Scottish Highlands is where James Bond grew up at Skyfall Lodge. It’s also one of the most prominent locations in the Bond franchise. Some of the most destructive scenes in the 2012 film happen there such as Judi Dench’s M losing her life at the hands of Silva’s men. Glen Coe has a foggy and dramatic landscape, making Skyfall poignant.



5. Gare Loch, Argyll and Bute, Scotland
As seen in: The Spy Who Loved Me (1977)

One of the most important moments in The Spy Who Loved Me sees Gare Loch as the setting. Bond, played by Roger Moore in this film, finds out that the huge loss of submarines is Karl Stromberg’s sinister plan to create underwater civilisation and that it isn’t an accident after all. This scene happened on the eastern shore of Gare Loch where Her Majesty’s Naval Base Clyde is located.

6. Eden Project, Cornwall, England
As seen in: Die Another Day (2002)

Pierce Brosnan’s final film as James Bond, Die Another Day, saw the Eden Project in Cornwall used as a filming location. The Eden Project was used to film the inside of primary villain Gustav Graves’ ice palace. Jinx Johnson, played by Halle Berry, climbed the real attraction for the film.

7. Bourton-on-the-Water, Cotswolds, England
As seen in: Die Another Day (2002)

This village in the Cotswolds was transformed into an Icelandic glacier for the 2002 film. Bond’s car chase with Zao was filmed in the now-icy village.

8. Eilean Donan Castle, Scottish Highlands, Scotland
As seen in: The World is Not Enough (1999)

While Eilean Donan Castle in the Scottish Highlands has proved popular with tourists, it also appears in the film as Castle Thane - the Scottish headquarters of MI6. It’s used as a temporary base for Bond and M in the 1999 film after a terrorist attack hit England’s SIS building.



9. Stob Dearg, Buachaille Etive Mor, Scotland
As seen in: Skyfall (2012)

In Skyfall, the scenes that show Bond and M driving his Aston Martin DB5 through Scotland were filmed on the A82 near Buachaille Etive Mor and Buachaille Etive Beag.

10. Stoke Park, Buckinghamshire, England
As seen in: Goldfinger (1964), Tomorrow Never Dies (1997)

Stoke Park features in Goldfinger’s infamous golf scene, where during a round of golf between Bond and his nemesis, Goldfinger, Bond’s trusty bodyguard Oddjob decapitates a statue with his hat. In Tomorrow Never Dies, Stoke Park is where Pierce Brosnan’s Bond faces off with the evil Dr Kaufman.

Commenting on the research, Shannon Keary, Digital PR Manager at Holiday Cottages, says: “James Bond is quintessentially British, and although he travels far and wide in the film franchise, we love exploring all of the amazing filming locations that show the very best Britain has to offer. From the Scottish Highlands to the streets of London, be sure to keep an eye out for these amazing filming locations when you see the new Bond film!”
