Introduction:

I've lived in London all my adult life and love sharing this amazing city with visitors. There is so much to explore and my aim is to help you use your time effectively. I can help you better understand the key sites - Westminster Abbey, St Paul's, the Royal Palaces, The British Museum , The National Gallery and the Tower of London, or provide a tailor made tour just for you, taking in your special interests, be it street art, military history, 18th Century Portraiture or 21st Century Architecture. Or come on a walking tour of the South Bank or Covent Garden - see how Londoners live and experience this international city through a local's eyes. And if you've had plenty of culture, I can advise you on where the best places are to eat or to shop, or just to enjoy the parks and other green spaces which characterise London.

I want you to enjoy your time with me so I aim to tailor every tour to suit you, and ensure that you get the experience you want. Literary, artistic, contemporary, historic: you can find it all on one of my tours. The main museums and galleries are a must, especially for the first time visitor, but I also love to introduce clients to smaller niche galleries and museums such as the Courtauld Gallery, the Sir John Soane Museum, The Foundling Museum, the Wallace Collection and the Dulwich Picture Gallery. Through these very accessible sites it's possible to immerse yourself in London's history and culture and the hopes and aspirations of those have who lived in this great city.

Contact me to make the most of your visit.

I am also a specialist Oxford City Guide and a Central Southern England Guide. This takes me regularly to areas to the South and West of London. World Heritage sites such as Bath, Stonehenge and Avebury can easily be visited from London, as well as Oxford, Blenheim Palace and the Cotswolds. Add quieter cities, a bit off the beaten track, like Winchester and Salisbury or take in some of the New Forest or the Jurassic Coast or even explore the Isle of Wight. All these places are only a few hours from London and allow for a wide variety of days out for garden tours and country walks to exploring picturesque villages or majestic medieval cathedrals and castles.

Contact me to discuss your preferences, I am more than happy to help you plan your precious time.

Some feed back on my walks, gallery tours and days out of London and further afield:

"You are wonderful!"
