Join Our Enthralling New Walk, SOE And The Secret Service
11 February 2020
With tensions rising in occupied Europe, the allies realised in 1940 that they needed an army of spies to infiltrate the Nazi regime. To this end, the Special Operations Executive was born. An amalgamation of three existing secret British organisations, the SEO set up home on Baker Street. So prolific was its recruitment of spies, the organisation soon spread to a myriad of SOE offices and HQs at locations throughout the area.
Take a 45-minute stroll around the Quarter with our knowledgeable guide, Mark, and uncover the history of the SEO and hear about some of the most selfless heroes of WWII.
Meet Mark outside 55 Baker Street on Wednesday 26 February at 1pm.
