Introduction:

Welcome to London! I am a qualified London Blue Badge Tourist Guide who has worked in the tourism sector for a number of years.

As a born and bred Londoner, it would be my privilege to take you on a journey through the city, visiting some of its iconic sites such as Westminster Abbey, the site of the Royal Wedding in 2011 of Prince William and Catherine Middleton, or the Tower of London where you can see the Crown Jewels of the United Kingdom and explore history dating back 1000 years!

We can also discover London by foot and visit world famous places such as Buckingham Palace, Trafalgar Square, Parliament Square and Tower Bridge.

If you are a sports fan, we can also arrange a visit to some of London's major sporting venues such as Wembley Stadium, the Emirates Stadium (Arsenal), Stamford Bridge (Chelsea) and more. I have an additional background working in major sports venues as an accredited tour guide at Wembley, as well as a contributor in the field of sports journalism.

As a father of a seven-year-old, I also enjoy working with families and can introduce you to and show you some of London's best places for children to visit such as the Natural History Museum, the Science Museum and Hamleys toy store!

Finally, if you would like to travel outside of London, we can discover wonderful cities and sites such as Stonehenge, Windsor, Bath, Stratford-upon-Avon, Canterbury and more.

Below are a few recent reviews from some of my tours:

"We did Stonehenge, Bath, Cotswolds and Stratford-upon-Avon and it was the highlight of the trip. Ben, our tour guide, was phenomenal. He was very entertaining, kind, and made great conversation. He made the tour unforgettable and we couldn't recommend him more as a tour guide. " Megan and Nick from Florida.

"Our tour guide Ben was very personable and provided a very interesting and entertaining tour. We enjoyed the day." Brenda from the United States. (Windsor Castle, Stonehenge and Bath tour).

"We came over from Philadelphia. We had the best experience throughout the day with a mix of fun, laughs and a personal touch from our tour guide, Ben." Mary, Eddie, Allie and Jude. (Stonehenge, Bath, Cotswolds and Stratford-upon-Avon tour)
