Introduction:

My name is Susanne and welcome to London!

London is like a large living open air museum showcasing our history from Roman times all the way though to the 21st century London.

I love showing visitors around and telling them our history and I am happy to devise a bespoke tour for groups and individuals. Whether it be a corporate partner programme, a class of KS2 children, teenage students, EFL schools, a family reunion or just a couple. Let me know your interests and I will prepare your visit.

My background is Events Management and Hospitality and I have worked on some pretty spectacular events both in the UK and also as far away as West Africa. All attended by Royals, A-listers and anyone in between. Oh the stories......

Being a Blue Badge Guide is so much fun as I get to meet amazing people from all over the world and I get to show of some of the very best that both London and the UK has to offer.

Special Interests:

Churches & Cathedrals

Westminster Abbey is a 'Bucket List Visit'.
A guided tour of Westminster Abbey is like travelling back in time. For centuries this church has been the center of royal life. Kings and Queens have been crowned here. Royals have been married and interred here. A guided tour of the Abbey brings all this history to life. Stories about saints and sinners resting side by side.

St Pauls Cathedral is also an amazing place to visit. The first protestant cathedral to be build after the reformation, its sits on a small hill in the City of London. A white beacon that miraculous survived the Blitz bombardments of London during WW2. At St Pauls you find a calm and light oasis in the middle of the hustle and bustle of Londons financial district.

Museums

London has without doubt some of the best museums in the world.

A guided tour of the British Museum will see you travel though time in amazing artefacts. A guided tour will ensure that you get to see the best 'must see' objects on display. Greek Marbles, Roman silver, Egyptians mummies. My tours are fun for the whole family.

The Imperial War Museum takes you back to the wars of WW1 and WW2. immerse yourselves in stories about how people lived through these world wars

The Museum of London is another gem in the collection. It takes you thought the history of London from its humble beginnings as a small village on the marshy shores of the River Thames to a place of power starting with the Romans and still going strong today 2000 years later.

Galleries

London boats an unrivalled art scene. Old Maters and Modern works dotted London in impressive galleries.

The National Gallery on Trafalgar Square is a tresure throve of paintings belonging to the nation. A guided tour of the National Gallery is fun for the whole family.

Sculptures, Objects and Paintings can be seen at Wallace Collection and the Victoria and Albert Museum.
