Hello there, my name is Danny Parlour and I'm a London Blue Badge Tourist Guide. For me London is the greatest city in the world and it gives me great pleasure to guide people around this vast metropolis. One of the best things about the city is the wealth of things to see and do. London has a history that spans over 2,000 years. Allow me to help break it down for you and make sure that you get the most out of your visit.
I'm very much an all-rounder as a person and am happy to guide people of all ages and number, be that as a group, family, couple or an individual visitor. London really has something for everyone on all budgets and is changing all the time and is an exciting place to be.
I am a Londoner born and bred and have lived in Stratford, East London since 2009. The area has experienced a fantastic amount of development since then, in-part thanks to the London 2012 Olympic Games. I'd be thrilled to show you around.
Aside from guiding I've had the privilege of spending most of my working life within some of London's finest royal palaces, such as H.M. Tower of London, Kensington Palace, Hampton Court Palace and the Banqueting House, Whitehall Palace. I'd be very happy to give you a tour (including a royal welcome!)

|Churches & Cathedrals||
Our churches and cathedrals are open to all no matter what religion you are. Let me give you a tour of Westminster Abbey; our royal church, the places where many of our royal burials, coronations and weddings have taken place for nearly a thousand years.
Or perhaps we could visit St Paul's Cathedral and marvel at the classical splendour, built by Sir Christopher Wren in just 36 years following the Great Fire of London in 1666.
|Castles & Palaces||
Working for Historic Royal Palaces within a number of roles for so many years has given me a real insight into many of our great royal palaces. Let me give you a tour of the mighty Tower of London, where the crown jewels are kept, or Kensington Palace home to the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and their family.
You might like to visit the British Museum, home to the Egyptian mummies, Parthenon Marbles and over 50,000 other items. I'd be happy to give you a highlights tour.
