Introduction:

Winner: Katrine Prince Award for Best New Guide (London) 2023

Hi, I’m Stephen. It would be my huge pleasure to share with you the city that has been my home for a decade – London. It could be your first or fiftieth time in ‘The Big Smoke’, there is always something to discover in this beautiful, diverse, historic, ever-changing capital.

As a trained actor I have always loved bringing stories to life, and around every corner in London there are tales to be told – of Romans, Royals, Rogues and Rock’n’rollers. For me, becoming a Blue Badge Guide was the culmination of 10 years’ experience in the tourism sector, so I fully understand what it takes to provide great service, for you to get the most out of your trip.

Whether you’re planning a family holiday, a group sightseeing tour or a study trip, I would delight in showing you London’s greatest hits and hidden gems, from the royal splendour of Westminster to the garden squares of Bloomsbury, to the Bohemian alleyways of Soho.

I can offer highlights tours in London’s major attractions and museums, including:

Tower of London
Westminster Abbey
St Paul’s Cathedral
British Museum
National Gallery
And more…

As well as walking tours in areas such as:

City of London
Westminster
Bloomsbury
Bankside
Rock & Roll Soho
And more…

I have the following special interests which I’d be very happy to theme your tour around:

Rock & Roll London

I am a music obsessive! I can show you the London that The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Jimi Hendrix, Pink Floyd, The Who and David Bowie all knew. Where legendary musicians lived, gigged, recorded and partied. Perhaps with a trip to a certain pedestrian crossing…

James Bond

For Your Eyes Only: all the MI6 HQ filming locations, the haunts of 007’s creator Ian Fleming and even where to buy Bond’s ideal breakfast ingredients! With a lifelong love and encyclopaedic knowledge of the British Secret Service’s best-known fictional agent, Nobody Does it Better…

Movie Locations

London has lent itself as a backdrop to many beloved films: Harry Potter, The Marvel Cinematic Universe, Mission: Impossible, Notting Hill, Paddington, Hitchcock, Classic Horror… What better way to spot them than with your own movie-buff guide?

All of the above can be tailored to suit your requirements.
