Introduction:

Whether you have visited London a hundred times, or this is your first trip, there's always something new to see here. I'll help you unlock the most fascinating corners of this global city: the world famous landmarks and also those hidden gems that only a local can show you. Tours of London that I do regularly include Westminster Abbey, St Paul's Cathedral, The Guard Change at Buckingham Palace, the Tower of London, City of London Architecture, Churchill War Rooms, the National Gallery, British Museum, the Olympic Park and many more besides! I absolutely love this great city and it's always a pleasure taking people around the very best of it.

As well as London, I also regularly guide day trips to some of the most beautiful sites in the south of England. These include Bath, Stonehenge, Salisbury, Windsor, Oxford, Canterbury & Kent, Stratford-upon-Avon, Blenheim Palace and the Cotswolds.

My background in engineering and building design gives me a particular insight into why London looks the way it does. I have been fortunate enough to work alongside world leading architectural practices including Herzog & de Meuron, Zaha Hadid, Fosters & Partners and Rogers Stirk Harbour & Partners and this experience feeds into the specialist architectural tours that I run.

Get in touch if you would like to experience an unforgettable day trip from Central London to Greenwich and back (for small groups only).

Sports & Pastimes

London is the home of Sport! Wembley, Wimbledon, Lords, Twickenham, the Olympics, Premier League football clubs- I love doing tours on all of them.

Religion

I can deliver tours charting the world changing church movements that have sprung from London: from the Salvation Army to John Wesley and the forming of the Methodist Church. I also do a British Museum tour that focuses on biblically relevant artifacts.

Ethnic Britain
Churches & Cathedrals

My other job is as a church building development consultant. I have a good understanding of not just church architecture but also on how the buildings are used and how they have been used over the centuries. I love to take people around the City of London churches, St Paul's Cathedral, Westminster Abbey and many of the stunning cathedrals that the south of England has to offer.

Architecture

Previously I worked for over 10 years as an engineer and building design consultant for the global consultancy Arup. I am an expert in modern, low energy architecture.
