City Of Spies on Thursday 14th January 2021

Immerse yourself in the ‘cloak & dagger’ world of the second oldest profession in the world……Espionage!
London is the true ‘City of Spies’ with over 10,000 agents hard at work in the capital! You will hear tales of Elizabethan intrigue, the Great Game and the Cold War. You’ll 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.” This is a spy journey that John Le Carre, Frederick Forsyth and Rudyard Kipling would be proud of.

Our team of experts will highlight the world of Spooks in an incredibly unique and practical way……and at the end, you can enjoy a Vespa – vodka Martini, shaken……not stirred!

Address

54 Buckingham Gate, London SW1E 6AF
