What to expect

Uncover secrets on a spy journey in London. It is the true ‘City of Spies’ with over 10,000 agents hard at work in the capital. Hear tales of Elizabethan intrigue, the Great Game, and the Cold War. Tread in the footsteps of ‘The Cambridge Five’, SOE and of course, the most famous spy in the world: “Bond, the name’s James Bond”.

Created by an expert from the real world of espionage and the British secret service, you will discover the world of Spooks in an incredibly unique and practical way and at the end enjoy a well-earned shaken, not stirred Vespa martini.

Visit the once known ‘House of Spies’ St Ermin's, a beautiful Art Nouveau building that sat opposite the first MI6 headquarters and was frequented by none other than Ian Fleming, the author of James Bond. Fleming and his fellow MI6 spy colleagues crossed over to the hotel via a secret passage directly from MI6. You will sip a Vodka Martini here to loosen you up for your day as the greatest spy.

Walking through St James's Park is always a pleasure but you’ll never see it in the same light again after this visit. Surrounded by Espionage history, there’s no better place to get into full 007 mode again.

A visit to London’s ‘Clubland’ will set the scene for the machinations and intrigue of World War II’s spies and bungling agents. Then, to finish the day off, enjoy a very special and exclusive visit to a private club, in the heart of Whitehall for a farewell toast and you are welcome to join in a Q&A session with the expert host.
