There were only a few scenes in ‘No Time to Time’ that were shot on location in London unlike in ‘Spectre’ or ‘Skyfall’. One of them was the scene with James Bond (Daniel Craig) arriving at MI6 headquarters in Aston Martin V8 Vantage Saloon. Previously James Bond was driving such a car in ‘The Living Daylights’.

The scene was filmed on June 30th 2019 at Whitehall Ct. Below you can see a photo of that place taken from the Whitehall along Horse Guard Ave. On the left you can see the Statue of the Duke of Devonshire the Gurkha Soldier Statue in background. Aston Martin V8 Vantage Saloon was parked right behind that second statue.

While filming the scene, Nicola Dove who was still photographer on the set of ‘No Time to Time’, took an iconic photo of Daniel Craig. It became an advertisement for Omega watches. It was also the first look image made available to the press.

Whitehall Ct is located in the very center of London. No wonder it is close to other filming locations known from James Bond franchise. In the next photo you can see not only ‘No Time Location’ in the right bottom but also the Old War Office on the left. It was the MI6 headquarter in ‘Octopussy’, ‘A View to a Kill’ and ‘Licence to Kill’ (read also ‘Old War Office Building as MI6 HQ‘). The dome tower was also presented at the end of ‘Skyfall’ when James Bond was standing on the roof and looking at the London panorama.

Another ‘Skyfall’ location can be found behind the Old War Office building. If someone walked on Whitehall Ct in the direction from which the Aston Martin V8 Vantage arrived, he would see the Embankment Place round the corner. The scene with Raoul Silva (Javier Bardem) leaving the subway station was filmed there (‘Skyfall’ at Embankment Station in London).
