"If you are passing by No 2 Audley Square, be sure to check the lamppost. It has a small door on the side, which used to be used by Soviet spies as a dead letter drop during the Cold War. Ironically, No 3 Audley Square was the office where the initial auditions for James Bond were held and where Sean Connery was eventually cast as the first 007!"
