Introduction:

London is a fantastic city to visit and explore and it is an absolute pleasure to help visitors get the most out of it - whether that is exploring the modern city of today, uncovering the historical treasures that are found throughout the city, or enjoying a bit of both.

London is, and has always been, a city sculpted by its inhabitants – be it ingenious merchants, adventurous explorers, great thinkers or inspiring artists – and it is through their stories that the capital’s fascinating history has played out. As a trained actor, bringing stories to life is something I have always thrived on, and as a trained guide, it is my privilege to have the opportunity to share these with London’s visitors.

Above all, my aim is to ensure that your day is all about you, 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 use that experience when guiding.

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.

With very best wishes,

Alfie

“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!”
