James Bond and the Spies of Mayfair
Sat 29 October 2016, 11:00 – 13:30 BST
Join Michael as he looks at the spies of Mayfair.
For Bond fans we will explore Ian Fleming's Mayfair: where he was born, where he gambled and drank and how he got the inspiration for his greatest creation, James Bond.
But not all the spies of Mayfair are fictional. One of Britain's greatest traitors fled the country from here, a Russian spy was murdered and real spies still scheme and plot.
Reviews on Tripadvisor:
"Michael Duncan's Spies of Mayfair walk on Saturday was superb: intelligently conceived, well researched and genuinely fascinating. It's a must for all Cold War fiends Footprints of London are such a great organisation, offering something different at an excellent price. We've done two of their walks now and are looking forward to trying more."
"I loved this walk and the information provided. I have lived and worked in London all of my working life and had no idea I had walked in the footprints of some of England's most notorious spies. Highly recommended in this mixture of very busy and very quiet streets."
"This is a really fun and interesting walk. Michael is very knowledgeable, we learned a lot - not only about the spies and Mayfair, but also history and other interesting facts. I recommend it to anyone!"
The walk starts at the top of the stairs at Exit 2, Marble Arch Tube, by the Marriott Park Lane. Please check travel arrangements on the day at Transport for London's Journey Planner site.
