Step into the shadows of Westminster and discover covert locations where spies, assassins and duplicitous double agents plied their trade. Visiting the smartest corners of London, we peer into a murky world marked by treason and treachery, betrayal and murder.

From the wartime HQ of Britain’s Secret Intelligence Service (SIS) to the exceptionally discrete apartment of C, (‘M ‘in the Bond films), we walk in the footsteps of officers and agents who shaped history. Some of them managed Enigma – WWII’s greatest secret; others deviously created the biggest deception operation of the war. Some planned covert Cold War actions, a few gave away information on all of the above and one or two recently revealed GCHQ’s modern-day London secrets. Visiting shadowy locations that are rarely visited, we pass Ian Fleming’s wartime office, the glamorous house once used by SIS as a recruitment centre and the beautiful garden that witnessed an ugly assassination.

    Wow, this walk is amazing, completely outstanding and an absolute must do for anyone who is interested in London’s undercover spy network. You will hear stories told by the brilliant Dan that you have never heard before. Better than any fictitious spy novel you might have read. Places that you have never seen before or even knew existed despite the fact they are in one of London’s most elegant and busiest areas. Buildings where spies operated from that were only revealed a few years ago, hiding in plain sight! Stories of competence, amazing intelligence operations and incompetence and sheer luck at times. Places of murder and where potential recruits got their “tap on the shoulder”. All here in Dan’s walk, wonderfully told with humour and immense depth of knowledge. Highly recommended!
