The Name's Bond - James Bond! Superbreak Launches Latest Exhibition And Tour Packages01 April 2008
Fans of 007, the famous secret agent who has been thrilling us for over 45 years, or anyone interest in Jack the Ripper and London’s most infamous crimes should head to the Capital over the coming months and visit two of the latest exhibitions to open. Short break specialist Superbreak (www.superbreak.com) has launched a range of packages that include overnight accommodation and tickets to the exhibitions.
Opening in 17 April, the ‘For Your Eyes Only’ exhibition at the Imperial War Museum is set to bring even more demand for London according to Superbreak and the operator already has packages on sale. Celebrating the centenary of Ian Fleming’s birth, this will be the first major exhibition devoted to the life and work of the man who created the world’s most famous secret agent, James Bond. It will explore the early life of Ian Fleming, his wartime career and work as a journalist and travel writer and how, as an author, he drew upon his own experiences to create the iconic character of James Bond that continues to have global appeal. The exhibition features fascinating material, much on display for the first time, including a selection of annotated Bond manuscripts and the Colt Python 357 Magnum revolver presented to Fleming by the Colt Company in 1964. Material from the films will include the ‘blood-splattered’ shirt worn by Daniel Craig in Casino Royale, along with prototypes of Rosa Klebb’s flick knife shoes in From Russia with Love and Halle Berry’s bikini from Die Another Day.
Prices are from £64.50 per person including overnight accommodation at the four star Mercure London City Bankside with breakfast and a ticket to the exhibition. Valid at weekends until the end of May and based on two sharing.
Opening on 15 May, the ‘Jack the Ripper and the East End’ exhibition at the Museum in Docklands is returning to the scene of London’s most infamous crimes.
This is the first exhibition to explore the Jack the Ripper murders and their legacy and it is the first time the public will have the opportunity to examine the original police documents relating to the murders. From police files and photographs, to letters from the supposed Ripper himself, examine, for the first time, documents from the investigation and follow the crimes as they unfolded. With original artifacts also on show, there is the chance to analyse the evidence and reach your own conclusions about a story which continues to fascinate today.
Prices are from £66.50 per person including overnight accommodation at the three star Novotel London Tower Bridge with breakfast and a ticket to the exhibition the morning after. Valid at weekends in May and June and based on two sharing.
And watch this space for packages to ‘Hadrian: Empire and Conflict’ exhibition which opens at the British Museum from 24 July – 26 October and explores the life, love and legacy of Rome's most enigmatic emperor - Hadrian. This unprecedented exhibition features objects from 35 museums worldwide and recent excavations will be shown together for the first time. Advance registrations are being taken and prices will be launched shortly.
