Spy School - Secret Agent Day - Northampton:  

The Experience

Your mission is to conduct surveillance operations, test your marksmanship with guns, and learn evasive driving techniques and unarmed combat; guided all the way by expert instructors.

Your experience starts with a full briefing before you; head to the ranges to learn how to fire automatic pistols and sniper rifles, test your skill with axe throwing and use unarmed combat techniques. You can try surveillance operations using cameras, bugs and listening devices, and evasive driving techniques such as J-turns, handbrake turns and anti-ambush drills. Then you progress to the 'drive-in' pistol range, where you fire at targets from a moving vehicle, skid to a halt and leap from the car to shoot the targets before speeding off again.

A buffet lunch (including a vegetarian option), tea and coffee will be provided during this great Secret Agent Day in Northampton!

Spy School - Secret Agent Day - Northampton: Fascinating Facts

Spying is often quoted as being the second oldest business in the world. The Bible makes over 100 references to spies and intelligence gathering. Sun Tzu wrote his famous book 'The Art of War' around 500BC, which includes advice on intelligence networks. The word 'eavesdropping' derived from the Middle Ages when spies would listen at the eaves of houses, gathering news of any plot before it happened. In the sixteenth century Queen Elizabeth I created her own 'secret service', overseen by Francis Walsingham, the most ruthless spymaster of them all. Thanks to his spies the plot to replace Elizabeth with Mary, Queen of Scots was discovered. Over the next few centuries, spy networks became official structures for political and military intelligence, using polyalphabetic ciphers as codes. In the nineteenth century photography and telegraphy became import secret tools and by the First World War (1914-1918), morse code played a vital part in secure communications. Spying techniques were radically improved during the Russian Revolution with the appearance of a secret police force which eventually became the KGB and an Englishman, Sidney Reilly became the first 'modern' spy. Indeed Ian Fleming, who partly based James Bond on him, called him 'the Ace of Spies'. Today, the popular image of spies is James Bond 007, but the real world is far less glamorous.

Reviews
Dinner Cruise on Thames My brothers and sisters bought this Golden Moments gift for my husband and I for our Ruby wedding last August. We couldn't have picked a more glorious day to go. The whole experience was wonderful. The food was good, the Cabernet excellent and the disco was pitched at just the right level for the clientele. We will definitely recommend the experience.
