Beginning near St. James’s Park, the tour proceeds to Westminster, in which both inner and riverside areas are visited throughout this three hour experience. Smaller residential areas as well as major streets will be traversed as you absorb intelligence issues occurring both here and abroad.
Both famous landmarks and much less well-known buildings are passed by. Whilst some locations will appeal to those wishing to learn about institutions involved, there are plenty of opportunities to become acquainted with key personalities (heroes and villains alike) within the intelligence services – and some Parliamentarians - throughout the decades.
As with the “Classic” ‘Trail, you can be assured of a healthy dose of sex, violence, treachery and betrayal, as you’d expect from such a journey into the intelligence world. From honeytraps and inquiries to informants and imprisonment there will be no shortage of episodes and details to keep your mind active. Therefore due to the subject matter and level of detail provided, the ‘Trail is not suitable for children.
