Description

On this fascinating tour, you'll get to see visible signs of bomb damage from the war and visit the site of the very first bomb that landed in London. You'll see the ruins of a church that was destroyed during the blitz before being left to time as a memorial to the bloodshed. You will also discover the important Allied wartime headquarters. You will see where Sir Winston Churchill delivered his famous VE Day speech, and where Dwight D. Eisenhower, Supreme Allied Commander, plotted the downfall of the Third Reich. For decades MI5, MI6 and GCHQ pitted themselves against the KGB in a silent war that played out on the streets of London. In a very literal sense, the British capital quickly became a crucial battleground in the Cold War against Russia. On this part of your tour, you'll hear a tale of tragedy, betrayal, and eventual triumph. You'll explore this shadowy world with an expert guide and gain an insight into Britain's top intelligence agencies to learn about how they helped to protect the country. You'll see the home of MI6 (the 'home of James Bond'), and the headquarters of MI5. You will also visit the public 'dead drop' sites, where turncoat spies exchanged top-secret information with the Soviets. You'll discover the secret locations used by the intelligence services to recruit their agents, and hear how they were recruited. Prepare to be shaken and stirred by the stories of some of Britain's most infamous traitors and double agents on this insightful tour into Cold War London.
