Introduction:

With a background in both the concierge and acting worlds, I love the opportunity that guiding offers to ensure visitors to this great city are both well looked after and well entertained.

London is a rich and complex city, with great tales and characters from its history around every corner. Filled with ancient sites and remarkable museums and galleries, it is also a buzzing, modern capital, with the best of food and entertainment on offer. It is a joy to bring the city's past and present alive for those visiting, to reveal its secrets and stories, and I'd be delighted to do so for you on your visit.

Above all, my aim is to ensure that you get the most out of your time in the capital, and I will seek to tailor a booking to any specific needs or interests you may have. Having both travelled and lived abroad I have experienced first-hand how a good guide can transform a trip and make it memorable and I will take care over all of the practicalities of a booking to help it run as smoothly as possible.

Whether it is a visit to one of London’s prestigious major royal or religious sites such as Westminster Abbey, St Paul's Cathedral or the Tower of London; an exploration of art and artifacts at one of the capitals many wondrous museums such as The British Museum or the National Gallery; or a Walking Tour of one of the many fascinating areas such as Westminster, Covent Garden or the City of London; it would be my pleasure to be your guide and make your trip a memorable one.

“Alfie made everything we saw interesting. Not only did the kids love him as a guide but they could also tell others exactly what he said about everywhere we went. I was so impressed that he got through to them. He seemed to want us to really understand what we were seeing and everyone loved it. I would recommend Alfie to everyone!”
