Chris Van Hayden:

Hi, I'm Chris. I run tours for small groups, families and corporate events. These include all of London's main attractions and highlights, but I also love to show my clients hidden secrets London has to offer, off the beaten path.

I grew up in London and lived in my early teens in Milan Italy. In the 90s I lived in El Salvador where I was commissioned as an army officer and served as a Air Force pilot, having trained in Texas USA.

I'm also a professional musician, teaching guitar and running my own school of rock, mentoring children and their bands. I'm a keen artists and illustrated my own children's fictional novel: The Rock Adventures of Rocky Rocks. https://

I'm a keen rower and sculler and if not guiding or making music, I'll be on the mighty River Thames training or racing...

Personal Interests:

As an artist myself I am very passionate in music and art. I have obtained a BA (Hons) in Arts and Humanities.
