Welcome to THE INTELLIGENCE TRAIL Homepage: your starting point for private spy tourism and educational experiences here in London - spy capital of the world. 

 

Needless to say, you're warmly invited to have a good browse around the site. Learn more about the different private and VIP tour options. Or have a quick preview of the 'Trail on US television.

If the tour has whetted your appetite to learn even more about the worlds of MI5 and MI6 throughout the years, there's also some recommended book titles for you to consider - all given the 'thumbs-up' by 'Trail guide "Mr. X".  Other intelligence-related links and resources are also available.  And of course if you want to stay engaged with the 'Trail then you're welcome to do so on Twitter and Facebook: you'll see the icons at the bottom of each page.  If you're unfamiliar with the intelligence world and don't know your MI5 from your DIS, fear not: there's an informative "Who's who" guide to the British intelligence services you can read.

Whether you're London-based or coming from afar, if you're wanting to discover the real triumphs and tragedies, and the trials and tribulations surrounding MI5 and MI6 through the years on the streets of central London - you've come to the right place. Book your private spy tour today!
