"Gavin is funny, knowledgeable and everything comes out as a memory story. He goes from royal chatter to the latest news of locals events and all the details of the monuments and churches. It was like reading a fast turning page of history books, with a 3D explanation." TripAdvisor

Award winning guide Gavin is a 5th generation Londoner who wants to share with you one of the greatest cities in the world!
Whether you are after a day out exploring the streets, sites and attractions of London or looking for an afternoon delving into a particular aspect of London's history, Gavin is the guide for you.
Before becoming a guide, Gavin was involved in theatre. He trained as an actor at one of the top drama schools of London before becoming a "jobbing" actor. His career changed directions when he got involved in the world of puppetry, as both a performer and maker of traditional string marionettes.
The skills he acquired as a performer, he now brings to his tours and is able to create experiences that are enjoyable for people of all ages. He is a guide that always looks for new and innovative ways to present London's history, which is engaging, informative and fun!
His touring repertoire covers the whole of London and includes many different aspects of London's rich history past, present and future. From the Old Jewish Quarter of the East End, to the Old Bohemian Artist's of Chelsea. From Royal London, to London's underbelly of criminals and legends. Maybe art and culture is more your thing, then why not let Gavin lead you on a street art tour or through the grand galleries of the National Gallery to see the great European artists. Touring a big city always builds up a strong appetite and thirst, so what better way of finishing your day than with a London food & pub tour, where you can discover the wonderfully delicious foodie delights that London has to offer, washed down with a pint of local ale!
Gavin can also take you on daytrips out of London to places like, Stonehenge, Bath, Canterbury, Oxford, Stratford-Upon-Avon and the Cotswold where you can experience life outside of the "Big Smoke" and discover a different pace and rhythm of life.
So let Gavin know what you are interested in seeing and doing and let him create a day or days that fit all of your interests, passions and curiosities, making your time in London and England a memorable experience, created especially for you!
