Introduction:

Hi, I’m David Gray, I have been a qualified Blue Badge London Guide for eleven years. However, I worked for Transport for London during most of this time for their travel information service and so have an excellent understanding of public transport throughout the London area; including routing and ticketing options.

I studied at the University of London as a mature student gaining a Bachelor of Science in Environmental Science and then a Master of Arts in London Studies with a final dissertation on water supply to the capital.

I have an interest in transport in the capital but also public health issues: water supply, sewerage and sanitation, the spread of disease and those that sort to improve and resolve such issues: the Victorian engineer Joseph Bazalgette, doctor John Snow, the Metropolitan drinking fountain and cattle trough association supported by Angela Burdett-Coutts and social housing reforms by Octavia Hill.

I can guide a number of venues: Tower of London, St Paul’s Cathedral, British Museum, National Gallery, Tate Modern and Tate Britain, Westminster Abbey, Greenwich and the Docklands and the 2012 Olympic site.

I currently work for the Houses of Parliament and can help with access to the Palace of Westminster as a visitor or to watch a debate in the House of Commons Public Gallery or the House of Lords Stranger's Gallery. Please contact me for details.

I look forward to hearing from you.
