Introduction:

Hi, my name is David. Let me help you to discover London and England...

I was born and raised here in London and have always had a deep passion and curiosity for the history and culture that awaits you here.

After university I spent several years in St. Petersburg Russia, teaching, working in film and as a tourist guide. I then travelled the world as a writer before returning to what I consider to be the finest city in the world! I have been leading bespoke tours here for many years.

I am happy to take you on a panoramic tour, walking tour or guided visit to one of our many historic buildings, churches, museums or galleries.
I will be equally glad to go further afield to show you some of the fascinating places within easy reach of London such as Oxford, Bath, Canterbury, Stonehenge, Shakespeare's birthplace Stratford-upon-Avon or Windsor and Eton.

London and England are full of stories and secrets – from Harry Potter to Dickens, spies to royalty – come and discover them with me!

I have given examples of tours below but will gladly tailor an experience to suit your desires and interests. Get in touch and let me know your wishes.
