London Walking Tours

Welcome, I run walking tours of London for individuals, families and small groups who are looking to enjoy some guided sightseeing of our fabulous capital city.

Private London Tours

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