On Her Majesty’s Secret Service: Bond’s heraldry course: College of Arms, Queen Victoria Street, London EC4

Bond researches heraldry in the College of Arms, Queen Victoria Street, EC4, in the City of London (the capital’s business and historic core)  The handsome brick building, behind imposing black and gold gates, dates from the 1670s, though it was remodelled in the 1860s when Queen Victoria Street was laid out (which truncated the side wings). A uniquely British institution, the college is home to the heralds who grant and keep records of the coats of arms of the nobility – and the wannabe-nobility.
