About this event

A walking tour which unmasks the long tradition of Cambridge spying, from the earliest days of the university to recent times; from Christopher Marlowe to James Blunt, via James Bond. The tour will be led by Green Badge Guides.

Enjoy a spy-filled walk around some of Cambridge's loveliest streets. Discover how the Tudor monarchs made the university their secret-service HQ, and how they exploited codes, ciphers and undercover agents in their determination to reveal plots. Learn how a famous Elizabethan dramatist was exposed as a spy by his college bar bill. And why did Churchill call the Cambridge code-breakers at Bletchley Park, "the geese that laid the golden eggs."? Then there's James Bond, Miss Moneypenny the Big Five, and much more...

Email tours@cambridge-spies.uk if you would like a tour in Spanish, Russian, French, German Cantonese, Mandarin or Putonghua.

If booking has closed, or if the tour is full, we may be able to slip you in at the last minute, ir get another Guide, so email Cambridge.Spies.UK@gmail.com and we'll see what we can do.
