My name is Simon Whitehouse-storyteller of London. I am a dynamic, enthusiastic and passionate guide whose aim is to inform, educate and entertain.
With a background in professional theatre, I believe the essence of good guiding is storytelling and as a gifted communicator I aim to bring the story of London to life for you.
I have a passion for art history, literature and theatre and can tailor programmes to suit your individual or group needs.
I bring a wealth of experience as a guide having guided groups and individuals in the UK and worldwide for 20 years so you can be assured of being in very safe hands. I look forward to welcoming you to our wonderful city.
