Random Facts About MI6 Headquarters:
Located at 85 Albert Embankment, the can be found in southwest London on the shores of the River Thames and next to Vauxhall Bridge.
The building was completed in 1994.
Within the intelligence community, the building is sometimes referred to as “Legoland” and Babylon-on-Thames
“Legoland” has been attacked four times: thrice in James Bond films (The World is Not Enough,Skyfall and SPECTRE) and once in real life when someone shot an anti-tank missile at it causing only superficial damage.
When Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher agreed to purchase the building in 1988, MI6’s existence had not yet been officially acknowledged. This is especially funny, as James Bond had been working for them for more than 30 years.
Another random fact: I created and run the world’s oldest James Bond fan site on the Internet. It’s called Universal Exports and I’ve been running it since 1996.
