Walks & Tours

The City of London has many faces.

It is the oldest part of London. It is the most modern one. It is filled with traditions and innovation. It is the smallest but the mightiest. It has many treasures and many secrets.

My walks and tours show you all this. From the Roman foundations to 21. century changes, from the Great Fire of London to the Blitz, from Shakespeare to Agatha Christie, from Christopher Wren to Norman Foster, from Guildhall Art Gallery to Sculpture in the City, from City churches to City gardens...

I'm working hard on the best offer you can get. In the meantime, contact me to ask what I can do for you.

OPEN HOUSE FESTIVAL

For the first time I'm going to be a part of the Open House Festival not as a visitor but as a guide!

I'm going to be one of the City of London Guides taking you for free walks around the City. Join us in exploring the Square Mile, its history, traditions, architecture and hidden gems.

Save Your Spot

Free walks guided by the City Guides will take place on weekends 9-10 September & 16-17 September 2023.

On both weekends first walk will start at 10.00am & last walk will be at 2.45pm. All walks will start from Guildhall Yard next to the Art Gallery. Each walk lasts 60 minutes.
