Introduction:

Pepe was born and bred in London and has lived here all his life apart from a year travelling the world in his 20’s.

His professional life began working as a stage manager, followed by 15 years as a Tour Manager leading tours of the UK, Ireland and Europe, the USA, Canada, New Zealand and The Middle and Far East.

He qualified as a London Blue Badge Guide in 2011 and was honoured to receive the award for Best Overall Practical Exam Guide.

He loves the theatre and tries to attend as often as possible and is usually ahead of the game when it comes to recommendations.

He is a keen cyclist and loves the outdoors and walking and he believes the best way to see a city is on foot.

Pepe is particularly good at working with children and can usually keep them engaged and entertained.

Pepe can offer walks on a wide range of themes including Royal London and a visit to Westminster Abbey, the graffiti and street art of Spitalfields and Shoredtch, The Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park (he was one of the 70,000 volunteers on the 2012 Olympic Games), sexy Soho or even the London of Jack the Ripper.

He is also able to offer cycling tours of the city and can offer visits to a wide range of sites including The Tower of London, St Paul’s Cathedral, The British Museum and Tate Modern.

Special Interests:

Theatre

London is one of the world's great cities for the performing arts. With a background in theatre I look forward to exposing you to everything theatrical London has to offer. Musicals, Plays, Opera, Ballet, The Fringe and Shakespeare, London has it all.

Walking Tours

The only way to get beneath the surface of this amazing city is on foot. Royal London, Covent Garden, Mayfair, Spitalfields and Shorditch, Bloomsbury, of even the Olympic Park, we will leave no stone unturned. How about a Jack the Ripper walk?

Museums

London has some of the finest museums in the world. The Tower of London and the British Museum are a must on any visit to London. Let me tell you some of the secrets of these famous institutions.

Churches & Cathedrals

How about a visit to the Coronation church Westminster Abbey, location of a recent royal wedding, or perhaps St Paul's cathedral, the masterpiece of Sir Christopher Wren.

Art/Paintings & Sculpture

I specialize in Street Art and Graffiti tours of Shorditch and Spitalfields,
