ABOUT THE EXPERIENCE

 

London is the true “City of Spies” with over 10,000 agents hard at work in the capital! You will hear tales of Elizabeth I and intrigue, the Great Game, and the Cold War. You’ll tread in the footsteps of “The Cambridge Ring”, the Special Operations Executive and, of course, the most famous spy in the world: “007”.

This is a spy journey of which John Le Carre, Frederick Forsyth, and Rudyard Kipling would be proud.

We explore the successes and failures of MI5 and SIS (MI6), root out the treachery of the Cambridge spy ring, find out the facts behind the invention of the world’s first computer and why many of its uses were top secret until recently… and how many more still are! Created by an expert from the real world of espionage and the British secret service, you will discover the world of spooks in a unique and practical way. At the end, you can enjoy a well-earned Vespa – vodka

Martini, shaken, not stirred then enjoy dinner at our top-secret Whitehall venue.

AGENDA

Meet at St James’s Park Underground Station at the Petit France exit

• Visit St Ermin’s, an essential part of the British espionage story. Once known as the “House of Spies”, this beautiful Art Nouveau building sat opposite a former MI6 headquarters and was frequented by none other than Ian Fleming, author of the James Bond novels.
• Queen Anne’s Gate; home of the first Head of the Secret Intelligence Service (MI6) codenamed “C” (that’s “M” from the Bond movies to you and me) and was the base for all the most prominent espionage personnel.
• A walk-through St James’s Park is always a pleasure, but you’ll never see it in the same light after this visit as you are surrounded by espionage history.
• We then head to Waterloo Place, the beginning of “Clubland” to learn about treason, betrayal, money and scandal.
• A visit to London’s “Clubland” will set the scene for the machinations and intrigue of World War II’s spies and bungling agents – not forgetting the Cold War!
• Then, as we walk through the corridors of power, past the old War Office and the Air Ministry, we’ll stop off at The Admiralty which some believe is the birthplace of Bond himself.
• Then, to finish off the day, you’re invited to a private club in the heart of Whitehall for a farewell toast where guests are welcome to join in a Q&A session with their expert host before enjoying dinner at the same venue.
