Welcome to THE INTELLIGENCE TRAIL: the in-depth London and Edinburgh spy tour company. And more!

Book your private spy tours, teambuilding and incentives events and educational experiences in London: spy capital of the world and Scotland’s capital city, Edinburgh.


The ‘Trail offers the most comprehensive content-rich introduction to the shadow world of Britain’s main intelligence services – MI5, MI6, and GCHQ – on the streets of London, in key locations associated with the spy world throughout the decades. And the London tours are now accompanied by a brand new full-length Edinburgh tour.

Whether you’re a historical or political interest society, undergraduate / postgraduate student group or an after-work social organiser, you can choose from several private walking tour options. If something special is required as part of a teambuilding or prize / incentive there’s no shortage of custom options that can be discussed.

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.

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 and Edinburgh – you’ve come to the right place.

As chosen by current and former members of the intelligence / military / security and diplomatic communities from around the world.
