Hello, I'm Katie. I run London tours for individuals, families and small groups. I love sharing my city with first time visitors, as well as Londoners who want to get to know their home better. Either way you will be sure to get under the skin of this great city.

As well as the major sights, discover real London (the bits most locals don’t even see!) with a born and bred Londoner and award-winning history blogger.

Winner of "Best Overall Presentations" 2018


Here's what people have thought of my tours;

"We can’t say enough good things about Katie! We hired her for a private tour during our trip to London and couldn’t be happier. She was easy to set up a tour with and met us at our hotel on time and with a smile. Having been on a tour with Katie, we feel like we got to know London in a way that never would’ve been possible without her. Our four hour tour with Katie was definitely the highlight of our time in London and we can’t recommend her enough!" - Ryan, Minnosota

London is home to some of the most exciting and thought-provoking Street Art. I love taking visitors around the vibrant areas of Shoreditch to explore the art, and stories behind it. See some of the tricky-to-find masterpieces including work by Banksy, Jimmy C, Christiaan Nagel and Ben Eine.
