For me London is the greatest city in the world and it gives me great pleasure to guide people around this vast metropolis. One of the best things about the city is the wealth of things to see and do. London has a history that spans over 2,000 years. Allow me to help break it down for you and make sure that you get the most out of your visit.

I'm very much an all-rounder as a person and am happy to guide people of all ages and number, be that as a group, family, couple or an individual visitor. London really has something for everyone on all budgets and is changing all of the time and is very much an exciting place to be.

I am a Londoner born and bred and have lived in Stratford, East London since 2009. The area has experienced a fantastic amount of development since then, in-part thanks to the London 2012 Olympic Games. I'd be thrilled to show you around.

Aside from guiding I've had the privilege of spending most of my working life within some of London's finest royal palaces, such as H.M. Tower of London, Kensington Palace, Hampton Court Palace and the Banqueting House, Whitehall Palace. I'd be very happy to give you a tour (including a royal welcome!)


What people say:
“Thank you so much for all of your help while we were in London. We loved our tours, especially the Changing of the Guard. It was such a special experience, Also, Danny is a fantastic tour guide. Sydney absolutely loved him. He's the best! Hope the rest of your summer is great.”
Rachel, Tower of London

“I truly cannot thank you both enough for organizing my tour with Danny. He is an incredible guide... enthusiastic, extremely knowledgable, personable, and just so lovely to be around — I felt like I was touring the city with a friend (that was of course a London expert!).” Therese, Changing of the Guard and Westminster Walk.

“We all had a fantastic time and Danny was a great hit. He was extremely knowledgeable and the guests are still talking about the venue and its history.  It truly is a spectacular place.”
Henry, Banqueting House

“Our guide was not only knowledgeable but friendly, patient and nice. He provided all of us with not only a glimpse of English history but incorporated anecdote which made the history more palatable. Surprisingly, the children learned a lot. If you ever need a guide I would highly recommend Danny.”
Candy, Changing of the Guard, The Royal Mews and London Eye

Special Interests:

Churches & Cathedrals

Our churches and cathedrals are open to all no matter what religion you are. Let me give you a tour of Westminster Abbey; our royal church, the places where many of our royal burials, coronations and weddings have taken place for nearly a thousand years.

Or perhaps we could visit St Paul's Cathedral and marvel at the classical splendour, built by Sir Christopher Wren in just 36 years following the Great Fire of London in 1666.

Castles & Palaces

Working for Historic Royal Palaces within a number of roles for so many years has given me a real insight into many of our great royal palaces. Let me give you a tour of the mighty Tower of London, where the crown jewels are kept, or Kensington Palace home to the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and their family.
We could visit the Banqueting House on Whitehall home to the famous ceiling paintings by Rubens and the place where King Charles I was beheaded in 1649 or we could head further afield and visit Hampton Court Palace; pleasure palace of King Henry VIII in the 16th century, or Windsor Castle; the oldest inhabited castle in the world.


You might like to visit the British Museum, home to the Egyptian mummies, Parthenon Marbles and over 50,000 other items. I'd be happy to give you a highlights tour.
