Introduction:

I've been leading walking tours in London for nearly 15 years and thrilled to be London Blue Badge Guide of Year.
London has been home for most of my life, and like many Londoners, I took it for granted. Since I've been guiding I've appreciated what an extra-ordinary city it is, and it would be my honour to show you around.

"Doing the ...walk with Fiona was definitely one of the highlights of my 6 day visit to London. Fiona was almost a walking database, a waterfall with all those funny, strange beautiful and interesting facts."

Special Interests:

Walking Tours

I've been leading walking tours around London for nearly 15 years. The City of London, with it's ancient alleyways, is best explored on foot. As are areas like Covent Garden and Soho.It's the only way to see the fine details, to explore the nooks and crannies that even many Londoners don't know.

Transport

London's transport network is what allows this extraordinary city to function. The Tube is the oldest underground railway system in the world. So whether it is black cabs, or red buses, or even the cable car, transport in London is always more than just getting from A to B.

Churches & Cathedrals

From the royal coronation church of Westminster Abbey to St Clement's Eastcheap - the smallest church in the City of London, churches are often our oldest buildings, and our most inspired architecture. Having witnessed great national events and thousands of rites of passage they are the markers of our nation's history.

Ghosts, Murders & Mysteries

One of the most haunted cities in the world, it's a slightly dubious claim to fame, but London is populated by ghosts. Let me lead you through dark alleyways and tell you tales to make your hair stand on end.
Or we could head east to Spitalfields and Whitechapel and I'll tell you about five women, united in death, killed by Jack the Ripper.
