Introduction:

Hello, I'm Katie. I run London tours for individuals, families and small groups. I love sharing my city with first time visitors, as well as Londoners who want to get to know their home better. Either way you will be sure to get under the skin of this great city.

As well as the major sights, discover real London (the bits most locals don’t even see!) with a born and bred Londoner and award-winning history blogger.

Street Art

London is home to some of the most exciting and thought-provoking Street Art. I love taking visitors around the vibrant areas of Shoreditch to explore the art, and stories behind it. See some of the tricky-to-find masterpieces including work by Banksy, Jimmy C, Christiaan Nagel and Ben Eine.
