Introduction:

Come along with this enthusiastic and passionate Londoner and see the highlights of the two cities-the City of London with its medieval alleyways and iconic post-modern buildings and the City of Westminster with its political and royal connections
I can plan a bespoke tour which suits your particular interests or join me on a tour of the top 5 or 10 highlights of London

A tour could include any of the following

*the City of London founded 2,000 years ago. The financial centre with post modern buildings, Roman remains, beautiful churches by Christopher Wren and medieval alleyways

*the City of Westminster, the royal and political heart of London.See Buckingham Palace, the Changing of the Guard, Westminster Abbey - the 'parish church' of Britain with its breathtaking architecture, medieval tombs and Poets' Corner

*Combine a trip on the river, the best way to see London, with a visit to the the Tower of London

* Southwark, south of the City where medieval Londoners went for their entertainment, galleried coaching inns and the Pool of London where the tall tea clippers brought their cargo into London

*The British Museum, Victoria and Albert Museum, the Wallace Collection, the National Gallery

As well as a Blue Badge Guide, I am also a qualified City of London Guide and am very proud to be a Freeman of the City. My qualifications include an honours degree in English Language, Literature and Classical History and a post graduate degree in Communication
