I am a qualified teacher and an experienced gallery guide and teacher. I specialise in one-off tours for young people and families -both of well known places and hidden London. I volunteer in the Education Departments at Westminster Abbey and Dulwich Picture Gallery.

Christie from the US thought:'Thank you very much for an exceptional experience and the best tour I have ever been on. Philippa is amazing! Her depth of knowledge invigorated by her passion for the Abbey makes for a fantastic few hours! I wish we could have moved on to the next site and she could have kept talking!'

ED from London wrote: 'Thank you for a marvellous tour of the City churches on Monday. For me it still feels like a day full of light and glory. You were the most wonderful guide - full of interest, knowledge and enthusiasm and at the same time drawing us all in. Truly fantastic.'

The Dickerman family from the States wrote: 'Philippa was wonderful--knowledgeable, enthusiastic, entertaining, passionate, and excellent with children.'
