Top 10 James Bond locations

Whether you are a Bond fan or not, you’d probably agree the locations they pick to film the movies are often a huge part of their appeal.

The Times has asked two authors o pick their favorite Bond locations. Here they are.

Gareth Scurlock’s top five locations:

  1. Jamaica: Dr No
  2. Luxor, Egypt: The Spy Who Loved Me
  3. New Orleans, USA: Live & Let Die
  4. Belgrade and Zagreb, Yugoslavia: From Russia With Love
  5. Outer space: Moonraker

Ginny McGrath’s top five locations:

  1. London, England: The World is Not Enough
  2. Cadiz, Spain: Die Another Day
  3. Monte Carlo, Monaco: Goldeneye
  4. Phuket, Thailand: The Man with the Golden Gun
  5. Udaipur, India: Octopussy

I think I would have to go with Monaco myself. Bond and the Mediterranean simply shake well.
