As a former member of the Band of the Scots Guards and a professional musician you will appreciate that I am well placed to tell the inside story of London`s pomp and circumstance and of London as an international music centre. Tours on foot cover subjects as diverse as the Beatles, Bethnal Green and the Krays, Royal London, and many others, just ask!
2014 is the centenary of the First World War and 70th anniversary of the D-Day Landings. I have a broad knowledge of both so whether you want to visit one of London`s military museums, the newly re-opened Imperial War Museum, the Churchill War Rooms or even take a trip out to East Anglia to see some of the many former WW2 8th AAF airfields, I am happy to discuss your itinerary.
