Dear Mummy, just call me Bond, James Bond! Recently I pretended that I was a top secret spy and saw the brand new Bond in Motion – No Time To Die Exhibition at the National Motor Museum. It was a fantastic opportunity to act out my dream of becoming an MI5 spy!
The exhibition is set in the main Motor Museum at Beaulieu in Hampshire and features iconic cars, gadgets and costumes from the latest 007 film. If you haven’t seen the film I’d totally recommend it! There’s also a range of Bond merchandise available to buy in the Beaulieu gift shop as well as the 007store.com which would make a great gift idea for a Bond fan.
The exhibition, which is running until November 2022, offers the first opportunity to see many of the original vehicles, gadgets and costumes from No Time to Die against the backdrop of large screens showing action shots from the recently released film.
I was super excited to see some of the cars from the film and I was mesmerised by seeing the film clips on the large screens behind them. It was beautifully laid out and easily accessible with plenty of space to move around the exhibits.
My daddy is a massive four-wheeled drive enthusiast and loved studying the Bond’s Land Rover Series III and the Land Rover Defender 110 which are on display. I also loved seeing the Triumph Scrambler motorcycle, featured in the first part of the new film and the Royal Alloy Scooter.
Also on display was the Aston Martin DBS Superleggara, driven in the film by new agent Nomi, and the No Time to Die Aston Martin V8, which was last seen in The Living Daylights and the impressive Chevy Bel Air.
The gadgets on display from the Secret Intelligence Service Q Branch, included Bond’s Q-enhanced Omega Seamaster Diver 300m watch, alongside technical plans for vehicle designs and DB5 weapons.
There was also costumes and accessories on display from the No Time to Die movie, plus electronic tablets with information about the exhibits from the 25th Bond film.
But thats not all, as surrounding the Bond in Motion exhibition were over 280 cars, including the World of Top Gear and On Screen cars which makes up the National Motor Museum. We spent ages looking at all the classic cars from the ages.
We’d definitely recommend a trip to Beaulieu and the National Motor Museum and they often do other events like the recent Christmas experience we attended. This new exhibition is part of the ticket price too! Check out my earlier post to see everything that a visit to Beaulieu offers!
I can’t wait to head back down at Easter time for their BBC Gardeners’ World Spring Fair taking place in the stunning grounds of Beaulieu from Friday 29 April to Sunday 1 May.
Disclosure: We were invited to Beaulieu to see Bond in Motion – No Time To Die Exhibition for the purpose of a review. All undercover observations in our video and spy shenanigans are our own.
