After dinner the other night, Adam’s cousin casually mentioned to us that the scene in Skyfall (2012) where Bond chases the villainous Silva through a train station and onto a train was shot at Charing Cross station, right near Trafalgar Square. So of course we had to go straight there to check it out! The overall scene is quite tense and exciting but there’s one cool moment where Bond and Silva slide down the middle of the escalators. I couldn’t imagine that happening in real life as a) it would cause a scene, and b) there are some nasty signs in the middle which could cause the stunt to be quite painful.
