About the tour

Chelsea is often regarded as an idyllic space in the heart of London: beautiful parks, historic buildings and the hustle and bustle of shops. Yet under this genteel image lie dark secrets and stories of espionage, deceit, and drama.

From Soviet agents, Nazi agitators, and spy catchers to thriller writers, this captivating tour will highlight some of the area’s best kept secrets. The tour will visit where James Bond allegedly lives, pass the site of a pub frequented by Cambridge spies and end where a Nazi agent went on trial for treason.

This tour will start and end at the National Army Museum. It will last for approximately two hours.
