    Explore Great Britain


    I’ve been lucky enough to travel the world with my job. In the last three years I’ve been to every continent other than Antarctica. Most recently was a trip to London. It was over there that it dawned upon me – as much as I love faraway destinations like Thailand, Argentina and Australia, one of the world’s most breathtaking regions is practically on my doorstep – Great Britain. That’s why it gives me so much pleasure to announce our new partnership with VisitBritain. Now I get to share everything I love about Great Britain through our videos, free pocket guides, features and more.

However, no Bond film is complete without a few adventures in his native land and throughout 23 films, including the latest release ‘Skyfall’, James Bond has experienced many shootouts, car chases and encounters with beautiful women around the UK.
