Re: What Bond locations have you been to?

Only a couple for me, The door to the station for lost agents
and the entrance to Westminster tube station. I have been
Swimming off the coast of Portugal ( not the same beach as Bond
But it's the same ocean, so close enough for me ).
I've Been on the Thames in a Boat ( full of tourists ) although in my
Mind it was the "Q" boat.  ajb007/lol
It was funny on my trip to London, I dragged the wife to all the places
I knew from " Spooks"  etc.  ajb007/lol She gave me some odd looks, given some
Of the things I was photographing.

YOLT - Himeji Castle.
I missed going to the New Otani Hotel during my last trip to Tokyo, but it was only a 17 hour layover and I had accidentally spent too much time at Disney Sea ajb007/rolleyes

Next time I'm visiting my folks for an extended period in San Francisco, I hope to visit the Dunsmuir-Hellman Historic Estate and the Lefty O'Doul Drawbridge from AVTAK.

Re: What Bond locations have you been to?

I've seen most of the New York locations from LALD. I work a few blocks from where the New York Filet of Soul restaurant in LALD was, but the building was torn down decades ago. I've driven down the FDR Drive where Bond's drive was killed. I never went to the "Worldport" airport terminal at JFK Airport where Bond arrives in New York, though I drove past it many times. Sadly it was demolished two years ago, but it was supposedly a terrible terminal anyway.

I've visited the outsides of many of the London locations, like the Old War Office and the SIS Building.

Though not featured in the films, I've visited the bespoke shops of Turnbull & Asser and Frank Foster, where a number of Bond actors visited to have shirts made. I used the services of the latter. I also went to Doug Hayward's shop, where Roger Moore had his later Bond suits made.
