  • England
    • With You Only Live Twice and Moonraker being notable exceptions, Bond is almost always seen at the HQ of MI6 (referred to as MI7 in Dr. No) in central London. This has been specifically the genuine article: the Vauxhall Cross building on the Thames from GoldenEye (1995) onwards. Prior to that it was a nondescript building near Whitehall, sometimes (e.g. Dr. No, OHMSS, The Living Daylights) ostensibly the HQ of Universal Exports, the Secret Service's front company.
