Itinerary

Tour Starts:1:30pm, St. Ermin's Hotel

Your Guide will be waiting to greet you next to the concierge desk at the historic St. Ermin’s Hotel, located at 2 Caxton Street in Westminster, located around a 5-minute walk from St James Underground station (serviced by the District Line).

Spy & Espionage Experience

This Experience starts in style at the St. Ermin’s Hotel; former headquarter of MI6, where an original coded message was written on silk hangers in the lobby – hunt it down and try to crack the code. Or have a drink before your tour starts at the hotel’s Caxton Bar where, in the 1950s, Guy Burgess handed over top-secret papers to his Russian handler.

For decades MI5, MI6 and GCHQ pitted themselves against the intelligence apparatus of the Soviet Union. Theirs is a tale of tragedy, betrayal, and eventual triumph in the war of espionage and counterintelligence. On this fantastic experience, you will explore this shadowy world and gain an insight into Britain’s top intelligence agencies and the different roles they play in protecting the country.

See the home of MI6- famously featured in several James Bond movies – the headquarters of MI5 and visit the public ‘dead drop’ sites where spies exchanged top-secret information. Discover the locations used by Intelligence Services to recruit their agents, and be shaken and stirred by the stories of some of Britain’s most infamous traitors and double agents who passed top-secret information on to the Soviets.

Tour Ends:Approx. 4:30pm, London Victoria Train Station

Your Tour will finish outside London Victoria Train Station, centrally located and easily accessible by national rail and underground, it is serviced by the Victoria, District and Circle Lines and is in Travel Zone 1.
