Introduction:

London is an ever changing world city and a great place to visit at any time of the year! Individuals, family groups, student and other groups - whether you’re a first time visitor or know London well - let me help you make the most of your trip.

Tailor-made half day and full day itineraries: Coach tours; walking tours; tours on public transport or by taxi or by coach. Visit the interior of the world famous Westminster Abbey; Tower of London and St Paul’s Cathedra and see famous changing of the guard in front of Buckingham Palace. Take an informative highlights of on of Lodon's world class galleries and museums.

As a former languages teacher, I am experienced in working with groups of students who are learning to speak English (age 16+ & adult). My diction and pronunciation are very clear and the vocabulary selected and pace of delivery is matched to the language level of the group. Topics and tours can be arranged to match your interests/course requirements.

As well as being a London Blue Badge Tourist Guide I am also a qualified and accredited guide with specialist in-depth knowledge of the designated areas of the City of London (the financial district in the Square Mile), the City of Westminster and Clerkenwell and Islington. I can deliver bespoke walking tours for companies, sales teams, clubs and associations.

If you’d like to venture further afield, let me show you Windsor Castle, Canterbury, the beautiful university city of Oxford, Bath with its Roman Baths and glorious architecture, the cathedral city of Salisbury and the prehistoric stone circle of Stonehenge - all of which can be visited in a day.
