You will really enjoy a guided tour with me! My name is Georgie, I am an award-winning Guide, famous for my bubbly character, kindness and interest in others.  You will learn, have fun and I will make sure you have a fantastic time!

If you love history as much as I do, especially our kings and queens, I can take you to the Tower of London and Westminster Abbey, both UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Or let’s take a walking tour and venture into London's labyrinth! We could tour the Royal District of Westminster, seeing the exterior of Buckingham Palace, the Houses of Parliament, Westminster Abbey and Downing Street! 

Or, if you are a budding witch or wizard? We can visit the Harry Potter film sites, see where Harry Potter learned he was famous at The Leaky Cauldron or disappear into Platform 9 and 3/4 at Kings Cross Station! 

Interested in world history? Come with me to the British Museum!  We can see the incredible Mummy collection - including the Gebelein Man, an Ancient Egyptian who lived in 3,400BC! Let me introduce you to the Gods and Goddesses of the Ancient Greece,  discover the fearsome world of the Ancient Britons and more!

Or let’s go shopping? London has some of the most unique shopping experiences in the world, from the glamour of Harrods to the vintage shops in Brick Lane.   And let’s not forget London’s iconic markets! I love food, and will happily take you to some of the best hotspots in town. 

We can discover one of the most beautiful collections of art in the world at the National Gallery, from Leonardo Da Vinci, JMW Turner to Van Gogh. Or if you want your world shaken and enriched by Picasso, Rothko and Guerrilla Girls - we can explore Tate Modern!  

London is nearly two thousand years old. It is a beautiful city, rich in history but also rich in people who contribute to London’s landscape with their street art, work in its iconic sky scrapers and relax in London’s beautiful Royal Parks - all of which we can explore!

Whatever you fancy, it would be my pleasure to take you around and tailor a trip to your personal interests; whether you are a family, couple, individual or group! I have a lot of experience with working with children and adults of all ages.
