What To Expect

St. James' Square
Our tour route takes in the St James district around Piccadilly and includes the location that became the focus of a state sponsored assassination attempt by Russian spies. We then explore how the Soviet forces enticed a British spy to defect to the communist regime for cold hard cash and visit the scene of one of Mi5's greatest failures of intelligence that led to a policing tragedy that still remains unsolved today. We finish here by revealing the exploits of a female spy, a hero of the second World War who helped in the fight against the Nazi's.

50 minutes • Admission Ticket Included

Vauxhall Bridge
The Mi6 building at Vauxhall Cross is the modern public face of the British Secret Intelligence Service Mi6. Christened Babylon on Thames we explore the origins and development of the environs of the vast edifice and how it serves the needs of the security community. As we mingle with real life spies going about their daily business we recount an audacious attack on the building by terrorist forces at the turn of the Millennium.

20 minutes • Admission Ticket Free

Grosvenor Square
We explore this area known as 'Little America' during WW2 to discover an American spy who tried to change world history. Our final stop reveals where the Soviet assassins return to complete their deadly mission.

Fascinating tour of the spy underworld. Barfield (I'm sure that's not his real name) was full of knowledge and stories. Really worth going to even if you're not into spy stuff. Just so surprising to find out how much spy action takes place here in London.
