When "Skyfall" opens in theaters on November 9, the world will be thinking about the country super spy James Bond is sworn to protect: Great Britain.
But you can do more than just think about the land of Aston Martin, London's bustling streets or the British Royal Family: Until Nov. 2, you can enter to win a Bond-themed trip to Britain, complete with airfare, lodging, new luggage and tickets to some of the London locales that have been featured in Bond films.
To play "Agent UK," create your agent profile at http://travel.yahoo.com/visit-britain/agent-uk-competition/
Once you do that, you will be sent on a series of virtual missions exploring places and points of interest around Scotland, Wales and England. Many of them are related to James Bond and his glamorous spy lifestyle — or just quintessentially British.
Based on clues at the top of the page, you must identify and confirm which location, out of a series of markers on the map, matches the given clue. Don't worry if you don't know every inch of Britain: You can find a description of each location by clicking on its marker.
When you think you've found the location matching the clue, click on its marker and hit "confirm" to find out if you're right. If you're not, you'll get more chances (although the Queen may voice her displeasure with the quality of your service).
Each completed mission unlocks the next task. Completing all missions automatically enters you to win the grand prize.
The grand prize includes:
- Round-trip economy class flights to Britain with British Airways for the winner plus 1 guest, subject to availability and subject to any blackout dates/periods;
- A suite for 3 nights at a Radisson Blu Edwardian, London hotel, inclusive of breakfast and tax; for the winner plus 1 guest, subject to availability;
- A driving experience with Aston Martin for the weekend;
- 1 Globe-Trotter luggage;
- 2 The View from The Shard tickets;
- 2 Up at The O2 tickets;
- 2 EDF Energy London Eye standard tickets.
Once you've completed your mission, follow @VisitBritain and watch for the #agentUK tag on Twitter or Like the Visit Britain page at LoveUK on Facebook to find out about chances to win other prizes.
