MI6 has a rather [[{{HomeBase}} cool base]], namely its headquarters at Vauxhall Cross on the River Thames. On the other hand, it is apparently regarded as [[AwesomeButImpractical as a massive security risk]] by the Agents themselves thanks to its location, judging by the cheers at the SIS screenings every time it's blown up in one of the Bond films. Its domestic counterpart, MI5 also has a [[{{HomeBase}} cool base]] at Thames House, on the opposite side of the river, a little further down.

* ''Franchise/JamesBond'' in all his various incarnations[[note]]With the exception of Daniel Craig, all ''Bond'' actors would actually be ineligible to serve in MI-6 because there's a policy discouraging the hiring of anyone over 6 ft tall due to the fact that tall people naturally draw unwanted attention[[/note]], although the movie of ''Film/DrNo'' stated the agency to be MI-'''7''' instead.[[note]]There was at one point an actual [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MI7 M.I.7]], it was part of the War Office and in charge of Misinformation, Censorship, and Propaganda, so that may be an inside joke regarding Bond's escapades. Sources are unclear on exactly ''when'' M.I.7 was wound up.[[/note]]
** In ''Film/TheWorldIsNotEnough'', the actual [=MI6=] headquarters on Vauxhall Cross is shown. The government initially tried to block the showing of the building in the film, citing national security. Foreign Secretary Robin Cook overruled them, stating, "After all that Bond has done for Britain, it was the least we could do for Bond."
