Full description
Start your experience at St Ermin’s - an essential part of the Bond story. Once known as the ‘House of Spies’, this beautiful Art Nouveau building sat opposite the first MI6 headquarters and was frequented by none other than Ian Fleming, author of James Bond. Fleming and his fellow MI6 spy colleagues crossed over to the hotel via a secret passage directly from MI6. You will sip a Vodka Martini here to loosen you up for your day as the greatest spy. See Queen Anne's Gate, home of the first Head of the Secret Intelligence Service. A walk through St James's Park is always a pleasure, but you’ll never see it in the same light after this visit. Carlton Terrace Gardens is a classic British scene of royal pageantry. There you'll have a chance to hear the tale of The Traitor King. A visit to London’s Clubland will set the scene for the machinations and intrigue of World War II’s spies and bungling agents. Walk through the corridors of power, past the old War Office and the Air Ministry, we’ll stop off at The Admiralty, which some believe is the birthplace of Bond himself. Finally, a very special and exclusive visit to a private club in the heart of Whitehall for a farewell toast and guests are welcome to join in an expert-hosted Q&A session.
