Ian Fleming

16 Victoria Square is where Ian Fleming lived from March 1953. It’s here, just a few hundred yards from Buckingham Palace,  that the great man wrote the Bond series, between drinking Martinis and smoking cigarettes. 

Dukes Hotel in Mayfair is where Fleming first heard the line “shaken not stirred”. Legend has it that both Sean Connery and Pierce Brosnan celebrated landing the Bond role at the bar of the Dukes Hotel.
