About Me

Guiding for Walk London

Hello

I'm a freelance, qualifed City of London and City of Westminster Tour Guide. I mainly lead bespoke walking tours, which are custom made for private groups, and occassionally I lead public tours as well.

I've spent most of my adult life living and working in London and my deep affection for London goes back to frequent trips here as a child. In particular I enjoy exploring London's hidden treasures, its less well know places and discovering its history and anecdotal stories that don't feature in regular guidebooks.

In 2009 I qualifed as a City of London Guide tour guide and and founded my own walking tour company Guided Walks In London Then in 2011, I also qualifed as a Westminster Guide.

Most of my guiding work is leading bespoke tours for corporate clients, clubs and indivdual groups. If you're considering booking a tour please take a look at my Guiding CV and contact me to discuss your guiding requirements.
