    From Russia with Love

    James Bond fans in the area can stop by to examine the Fairey Huntress racing boat which was used in the making of 1963’s From Russia with Love.

    The vehicle is currently on loan to the museum from Peter Nelson’s James Bond museum in Keswick since there is presently not enough space to properly display it.

    The National Motorboat Museum is open daily from 10:00am to 4:30pm except on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. It is located at Wat Tyler Country Park, Pitsea Hall Lane, Basildon Essex SS16 4UH.
