Introduction:

London is so vibrant! There is so much to see and do - from touring the magnificent Royal palaces and the pomp and pageantry that goes with it - to delving into our fascinating museums ... the British Museum with its world cultures ... and the National Gallery and the V&A - both a feast for art lovers, or the National Portrait Gallery to view so many characters from history.
Then there are buildings where history really does come to life... Westminster Abbey, Tower of London or how about a visit to the magnificent setting of Greenwich?
The streets of the London also have many tales to tell... with fascinating characters, stories of scandal, innovation and talent. I would love to take you on a stroll through various sections of the city..... we can discover some hidden corners together.
Should you wish to get out of the city and visit Stonehenge, Bath, Stratford etc. then I can guide here too and if necessary I can also assist with hiring transport - this often works well for families and small groups.
I have worked with people from all types of backgrounds including children (I have a 6 year old son myself). I work for corporate functions, tourist parties and individuals.
Whatever you would like to see I will do my utmost to ensure that you have an entertaining, hassle-free experience which will make the most of your time here in the UK.
Please feel free to contact me.

Castles & Palaces

The glory of past events and the royal family are brought to life during visits to our fabulous Royal Palaces and castles...... Kensington Palace, Windsor Castle, Hampton Court Palace, The Tower of London, plus many of the lost palaces too.... There are some great stories to tell there too!

Museums

The British Museum is the most fascinating collection of artefacts relating to world cultures. I love to guide here.
The National Gallery is an absolute feast for art lovers with almost all the major masters represented amongst its collection of over 2,000 paintings. The National Portrait gallery is a must for anyone interested in history - from 1500's onwards there is an amazing collection of works relating to the most well known characters from British history. Finally the V&A is one of the worlds great museums - so many beautiful objects from the past with their uses and their stories.

Conferences & Incentives

I have worked regularly as a guide for business events. Rest assured that your programme will run very smoothly with me as your guide. I have over 20 years of experience of working with groups of all different types.

Royalty

The Royal homes, palaces and castles plus many other off-beat places can bring the lives of royalty to life. There are so many stories to tell ... pomp, ceremony and .... scandal?!

Churches & Cathedrals

Westminster Abbey and St Paul's Cathedral are among the most spectacular churches in the country... places for coronations, weddings, funerals and many other memorable services. There are also other places of worship besides which also have their quirks and stories. Do let me tell you their stories on a visit here....

Galleries

The National Gallery - home to some of the highest quality European Art in the world is a must see..... The National Portrait Gallery is a visual jaunt through the history of Britain and the people who made it Great. Another amazing gallery is the V&A with its beautiful objects from around the world showing the art of design in the past through to the present day. Do let me guide you around these amazing national treasures...

History & Prehistory

History comes alive here in London where every nook and cranny has something to reveal. Packed full of stories, this city has never stopped evolving and paving the way for new ideas and forms of progress. Let me take you back in time to understand our streets and buildings better....

Stately Homes & Country Houses

You have come to the right place for stately homes - Britain is full of them and London is surrounded by beautiful places to visit. Within London itself we even have some of the London homes of the nobility - often used more frequently and for longer than their country seats. Let me take you on a trip to either....
