Introduction:

I love London!

I’ve lived here for most of my life and still find it the best place to be with something to offer for every interest, every taste and every mood.

If this is your first visit to London, let me help you make the most of your time here and show you its highlights - the royal palaces and parks, Westminster, the ancient and modern City of London and our world famous galleries and museums. If you’ve been here before, join me in visiting some of the fabulous, but lesser known, parts of our world class city - markets, secret gardens, special eating places, lunchtime concerts - to see and hear how Londoners live, work and relax.

Whether you’re interested in guided walks, site tours, transported travels or are here on fact-finding missions, I can tailor your tour to suit you, your interests, your timescales and your chosen pace. I want to help you get the most of your valuable holiday time by sharing my knowledge of where to go and when. Whether you're travelling alone, in family groups with or without children or as a group of friends, I would love to help you have fun in our city. If you have more time we could venture to see the Queen's favourite home at Windsor; the World Heritage Sites of Bath or Stonehenge; the colleges of Oxford.

I came to work in London many years ago, intending it to be a fairly short stay, but found I never wanted to leave. So although my job moved, I stayed! After a varied career in science, medicine and research, I’ve undertaken two years of training and am now proud to say I am an award winning Blue Badge Tourist Guide for London.

"Tricia has prepared an information packed tour. She is very knowledgeable not just about the history of Westminster Abbey but the architecture and people buried and commemorated in it. Her passion is contagious." J from London.

"My son and I had a great time visiting the Tower of London with Patricia.
Our tour was bespoke as per our requirements. Patricia has immense knowledge about the Tower and made it very interesting for my son who is 9 years old.
I would highly recommend this tour." S from Delhi
