James Bond UK locations: Britons can visit for much less than the 598k Bond budget
A new James Bond movie is set to hit theatres this week and it will be the last Daniel Craig movie as the legendary 007 agent. Throughout the franchise, James Bond has travelled the world, but many of the most iconic moments from the films were filmed in the UK.
Bond grew up in the Scottish Highlands, and the No Time to Die’s trailer has dramatic shots of Cairngorms National Park.
Britons who want to visit don’t need MI6 budget and can stay in the village of Tomintoul, the highest village in Cairngorms.
Walks along the Speyside trail and whisky tastings de rigueur.
It has lately been revealed it would cost £598,038 to spend the day as James Bond.
The research by Charles Tyrwhitt will make most Britons’ eyes water.
