Special interests: Although I have been guiding in a professional capacity since 2003, i have been guiding friends around london for many years. Particularly if you are on a budget i can point you in the right direction for theatre tickets, cheap restaurants etc. My interests include Music so i can tell you where to go and see bands. With average traffic speed in London comparable to that of the days of the horse and cart, I walk and cycle everywhere and by doing so, I notice the small details one would not usually notice by driving around. I love watching football and Rugby so if you want to know where to go and see a game, let me help you.
Walking tours: I never tire of walking around London. It's the best way to see this marvellous city. My speciality is Rock and Roll London and themed Pub walks. Allow me to dispel a few myths about English beer as we visit pubs in areas such as Chelsea, Soho Southwark and the riverside pubs of Wapping. I can do Beatles Tour, Jack the Ripper, walks around st james and Westminster with a Guard change at the end. Docklands, Greenwich, Highgate, Hampstead, Mayfair... you tell me where you want to go and I'll do it for you.
Extended tours: I can do day trips from London in my Mercedes Viano which can carry 7 passengers comfortably. However, for multi-day trips within the UK, the car will take fewer passengers depending on luggage.
