A Secret Agent's Car Paradise
Nowhere else can you see the largest collection of James Bond vehicles than at the National Motor Museum in Hampshire. The Bond in Motion exhibition has been running for a year, and has been so successful they have decided to extend it until the 5th January 2014.
2012 marked the 50th anniversary of the James Bond film series, and what better way to celebrate the adventures of our favourite secret agent, than by seeing up close, all the snazzy motors that featured in the films.
At the museum you will be able to see the famous Aston Martin DB5 alongside the Lotus Esprit S1, plus other treasures dating back to Goldfinger, like the iconic 1937 Rolls-Royce Phantom III, the buzzing autogyro from You Only Live Twice and Octopussy's Acrostar Jet. As well as cars, there will be a number of bikes, trikes, sleds and boats.
And As well as cars from the classics, you will get to see four of the vehicles from the latest Bond film, Skyfall, which is the 13th highest grossing film of all time. There will be two Honda CRF250R motorbikes, including the one ridden by Daniel Craig, and the Land Rover Defender 110 that featured in the opening sequence of the film.
Bond in Motion is included in the admission price to the museum, and also allows you access to Palace House, Beaulieu Abbey and World of Top Gear.
Tickets cost £20.00 for adults, £18.50 for seniors, £12.00 for 13-17 year olds, £9.95 for 5-12 year olds, or £52.50 for a family ticket.
