COVID-19 Response

It’s with a heavy heart that I have taken the decision to suspend all Look Up London tours until further notice. This wasn’t an easy decision and I will be in touch with all individuals who have bought future tickets for tours. Currently bookings are closed for physical walks, however you can purchase gift vouchers here.

Virtual London Tours

Look Up London is offering a new series of fun, immersive and history-filled virtual tours. Over four sessions, we will uncover the hidden history in the City, Westminster, Bankside & Covent Garden.

Tours can be booked individually, or as a whole series. Find out more here.

Supporting Look Up London

Until it’s safe to restart public tours again I will still be regularly updating my blog with interesting tidbits of London’s history. If you’d like to keep up to date then you can sign up to the weekly newsletter here, or follow along on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook.

I also release a new Look Up London Live video every Monday at 2pm; a short virtual history tour exploring a new London neighbourhood. These are free to watch but donations are welcome. You can watch all the previous videos here.

A huge thank you to all the loyal Look Up London tour attendees, blog readers, followers and supporters. I hope to be up and running again soon and in the meantime if you enjoy the London history posts and would  like to support Look Up London you can either make a donation towards the running of this website via Paypal or Square Up below.

Walking Tours in London

I offer walking tours in London for individuals, families and small groups who are looking to enjoy sightseeing walks around London with a blue badge guide. Join a fun-filled tour that will reveal some of London’s many secrets. Get local insights, fascinating stories and hidden gems off the tourist trail.


These tours are the perfect antidote for curious Londoners and its visitors, taking in sites that are often overlooked and ducking down side streets to explore the city’s heroes, villains and incredible history.

Small group walks run most weekends in different areas of London and bespoke private tours can be booked for any time! So welcome to my website, you’ll find a wide variety of unique London tours plus a wealth of informative blogs about the fascinating history of the city.

Enjoy a walking tour of real London (the bits most locals don’t even see!) with a born and bred Londoner, award-winning history blogger and Blue Badge Guide.

Private London Tours

My guided London walks show a new angle on its history. By raising our gaze and looking above our eyeline we spot little details that make its past and fascinating stories really come alive.

Maybe you want to discover London for the first time? Or maybe you’ve lived here all your life?! Either way our unique tours will give you an authentic experience from a knowledgable, enthusiastic guide.

As your tour guide I approach our London walks with fresh enthusiasm, as well as providing bespoke tours off the traditional tourist trail. My aim is to help you get under the skin of London and feel immersed in its culture, architecture and history.
