Introduction:

My name is Susanne and it will be my pleasure showing you everything that London has to offer. London is like a large living open air museum spanning 2000 years of history. From 2000 year old Roman walls to 21st century Shards of Glass.

I can devise a bespoke tour for groups and individuals. Whether it be a corporate partner programme, a class of KS2 children, teenage students, EFL schools, a family reunion or just a couple. Let me know your interests and I will prepare your visit.

My background is Events Management and Hospitality and I have worked on some pretty spectacular events both in the UK and also as far away as West Africa. All attended by Royals, A-listers and anyone in between.

Being a Blue Badge Guide is so much fun as I get to meet amazing people from all over the world and I get to show of some of the very best that both London and the UK has to offer.
