In ‘Die Another Day’ James Bond (Pierce Brosnan) engaged in a ferocious duel of swords with Gustav Graves (Toby Stephens) in the corridors of the Blades Club. 007 won the match. When he was leaving the club consierge (Oliver Skeete) gave him an envelope with a key. It was the key that opened the door to secret MI6 base located at abandoned Vauxhall Cross tube station.
The entrance to a fictional abandoned London tube station was filmed at the Westminster Bridge. Pierce Brosnan opened the door located in pedestal of the South Bank Lion sculpture. While standing at the door you can see the Big Ben and the Palace of Westminster on the opposite side of the River Thames.
In ‘Spectre’ we get to take a look at James Bond’s apartment. He (Daniel Craig) was standing at the window wearing dressing gown while waiting for Monneypenny (Naomie Harris). She brought him a box with personal things recovered from Skyfall. After the meeting in the apartment Moneypenny walked down the street into the darkness of the night.
The exterior of the house was filmed at 1 Stanley Gardens in Notting Hill in London.
The entrance to the building is located at Stanley Cres.
The exterior of the townhouse was filmed on December 15th 2014 in the evening. It was a week after principal photography began. Interior of the apartment was filmed at Pinewood Studios.
Both Daniel Craig and Naomie Harris were on location. Daniel Craig was standing at the window in an apartment with a balcony. Naomie Harris walked down the Stanley Cres towards Ladbroke Gardens.
At the beginning of ‘No Time to Die’ Madeleine Swann (Lea Seydoux) had flashback of her mother’s death while swimming in the sea in Italy. After that she and James Bond (Daniel Craig) in Aston Martin DB5 took the scenic road at the sea. After a few corners they entered the tunnel that led to Matera.
The sequence with Aston Martin DB5 was filmed from a helicopter in the south of Italy on road SS18 Tirrena Inferiore between Sapri and Acquafredda. It began near Canale di Mezzanotte on the border between Campania and Basilicata. It ended a few corners later below the tower called Torre dei Crivi. In the film Matera was right after the tunnel. In reality it would have to be 200 km long! Matera is located on the eastern side of the Apennine peninsula, about 60 km from the Adriatic Sea. The SS18 Tirrena Inferiore road runs along the Tyrrhenian Sea, on the opposite side of the peninsula. Filmmakers wanted to film the seqence in in the setting sun therefore, they sought a suitable route on the western side of the peninsula.
The tunnel they entered was not real. CGI was used to create it. In the film you can see the wall of the tunnel covering third arch of the bridge (photo below) and part of the road on the right.
There is real tunnel around the next corner but it is very short and there is no Matera behind it as you can see below.
The same location was used to film the very last scene with Madeleine Swann driving Aston Martin V8 Vantage.
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. Previously James Bond was driving such car in ‘The Living Daylights’.
The scene was filmed on June 30th 2019 at Whitehall Ct. The car was parked near number 4. Daniel Craig walked towards Ministry of Defence that doubled for MI6 headquarters.
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 the place where Bond parked the car in ‘No Time to Die’ in the right bottom and the Old War Office on the left. It was the MI6 headquarter in ‘Octopussy’, ‘A View to a Kill’ and ‘Licence to Kill’. 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. (‘Old War Office Building as MI6 HQ‘).
Another ‘Skyfall’ location can be found behind the Old War Office building. If you walk down the Whitehall Ct in the direction from which the Aston Martin V8 Vantage arrived, you will 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).
