A number of years ago I bought a copy of Gary Giblin’s “James Bond’s London” on Amazon. The book takes a pretty exhaustive look at the London locations from the books and films up until The World Is Not Enough, as well as locations related to Ian Fleming; in fact it was from Giblin that I first learnt that I had at one time worked in an office on Oxford Street a short distance from De Bry, where 007 bought his coffee.
The information contained in the book is excellent and it includes plenty of black and white photos throughout. However, finding specific locations can be a bit of challenge due to the organisation of the information and there are no maps to help navigate around London.
Nonetheless, it is worthwhile having in your collection, especially if you’re planning a trip to London. Unfortunately it is long out of print and examples on Amazon cost several times the £20 or so I spent on it. Ideally I’d like to see it on Kindle; if anyone has Gary Giblin’s contact details I’d love you to put me in contact with him.

No thanks, I'm not interested in news about 007
