Hello and welcome to London--my home and my passion.
Are you visiting for the first time and want to see Royal London, the pomp and ceremonial traditions London is famed for?
Let me show you Buckingham and Kensington Palaces, the Changing of the Guard, Westminster Abbey, St Paul's Cathedral and the Tower of London.
Perhaps you are a regular visitor-- together we can explore some hidden gems--the alleys and secret gardens of the City of London, the historic Spitalfields area or wander through riverside Bermondsey.
I can customise your tour to suit your interests and we can travel as Londoners do on foot, by tube or taxi, bus or boat, or I can organise a car and driver.
If you are here for longer we can have a day trip out of London, to Windsor Castle (where the wedding of the year is happening), Stonehenge, Bath, Oxford, Canterbury and many other places.
Before I became a Blue Badge Tour Guide I lived abroad with my family in India, Singapore and Japan and now I love welcoming visitors to my country.
"Liz, thank you so much for our guided walk. I enjoyed it immensely - but I cannot believe, as a Londoner born and bred, that I am so ignorant about my hometown. You are sooo knowledgeable about so many things its just amazing. And I love the way you deliver the information in such an interesting and engaging way. Looking forward to the next one! Thank you again." Verity Lewis
“I booked Liz Carew for a half day tour of London with a group of friends. I was unsure where exactly we should go and how long it would take. Liz was really helpful in making suggestions to suit our interests and fine tuning the timing so that the tour was well paced. She met us at the station, walked us to the Tate Modern picking out fascinating, unknown gems of history along the way. After the Tate we crossed the Thames to St Paul’s cathedral where Liz was able to guide us knowledgeably through all areas of the building, giving us statistical facts as well as stories of the many people associated with the building. She also booked a local restaurant for us for the end of the tour. Liz answered any questions we had as we went along, the pace was perfect and she made sure we could all see and hear at all times – even those at the back! I would highly recommend Liz for a tour.” Irene Goodman
“ Thanks for a truly informative day, am now inspired to make a special study of the churches in the City” Isobel W
