TRAVEL: Keswick car museum helps you to Bond with the stars; Bond exhibition in the Lakes.

VISITORS to the western Lake District can be both shaken and stirred as they celebrate the birthday month of the world's most famous spy, alongside some of his slick and glamorous cars.

The James Bond collection has a licence to thrill at Keswick's Cars of the Stars, home to some of the best-known vehicles from film and TV.

The museum rotates the cars on display from the Bond collection on a continuous basis. A phone call will tell you if a particular car is on display.

Think of 007 and an Aston Martin springs to mind, which is one reason why the museum is showing the Vanquish from Die Another Day.

Motorbikes on show include the Cagiva ridden by Pierce Brosnan in Goldeneye and the rocket-firing BSA from Thunderball.

Rotating the cars means that Bond fans can also see some of the vehicles used in chase sequences in the various films.

Look out for the 1971 Ford Mustang famous for a two-wheel skate in a Las Vegas alley in Diamonds Are Forever.

There are vehicles from other famous films, including Chitty Chitty Bang Bang and Batman. The museum opens daily from 10am to 5pm.
