London on Foot

London is one of the great cities of the world, and I can paint a vivid picture and give you so much more than a guidebook.
As your personal tourist guide, I’ll show you the celebrated sights – St. Paul’s Cathedral; the Tower of London; Buckingham Palace; Westminster Abbey.
And add all the details that most visitors don’t see, and the stories they don’t hear…

  • London at War

    In 1940 and early 1941 London was at the centre of world events, as Britain stood alone facing the imminent threat of invasion. London was subjected to the most sustained bombing attack - the whole world was watching.
    And from 1942 there was a friendlier invasion as the US forces built up in Britain, prior to the D Day landings. The traces of the blitz can still be seen after 70 years, from forgotten blemishes on some of London’s most famous buildings to faded signs directing Londoners to air raid shelters. Allow me to tell you the story of Britain’s darkest but finest hour.
    I can reveal where the Normandy landings were planned, and take you to places where the US forces worked and relaxed, while forging the most successful military alliance in history. And I can even show you the graffiti left by a bored GI on sentry duty.Central London has several fantastic war museums all of which I can guide you around
    - The Churchill War Rooms
    - HMS Belfast and of course
    - The Imperial War Museum

  • London on foot

    The best way to see this fascinating city is by getting out and wearing out some shoe leather. You have time to see the sights, and soak up the atmosphere – not just snatching a quick glimpse while driving past.
    As well as carrying out some of the Essential Westminster Walks for the Association of Professional Tour Guides I have carried out planned walks for a wide variety of clients:
    - A full day London highlights tour with emphasis on street markets & the Beatles for two ladies from South Africa.
    - A half day tour of Westminster and Whitehall for business studies students from a US university.
    - A tour around Royal London for a gentleman from the North of England, bringing his granddaughter to London for the first time.
    - I took a delegation of visiting police officers on a walk through three Royal Parks.
    - I guided year three children around Hampton Court Palace covering curriculum items on the Tudors and Christianity.
