What to expect

For decades, MI5, MI6 and GCHQ were pitted against the intelligence apparatus of the Soviet Union in the war of espionage and counterintelligence. On this fascinating tour, you'll explore the shadowy world of tragedy and triumph as you gain an insight into Britain's top intelligence agencies and the different roles they play in protecting the country.

Kick your day off in style at St. Ermin's Hotel, the former headquarters of MI6, where you can try to crack an original coded message. You'll discover the home of MI6, which you may recognise from the James Bond movies, the headquarters of MI5 and even visit the public 'dead drop' sites where spies exchanged top-secret information.

Then it's time to 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.
