My name is Tony and I live in Wimbledon, South London. I come from Southampton, on the south coast, originally. I met my wife at Teachers Training College in Kingston upon Thames and we haved lived in the London area ever since. Being part of Greater London, it certainly is a vibrant and exciting place to live. Anywhere in central London is only a matter of minutes away on the underground or local commuter train.

I have been teaching for many years now and absolutely love taking groups and individuals on day trips to various parts of London. I have always had a passion for taking friends to see unusual and different places that they might not have experienced before.

When I was very young, studying history at school, I used to love imagining I was back in a certain historical period. To actually go to a place that resonated with stories from the past was like time travelling. Visiting Jane Austen's house at Chawton or going on board Nelson's flag ship, The Victory, at Portsmouth, or touching the walls of a house Charles Dickens actually lived in, gave me - and still does! - an amazing thrill.

I would love to take you to see the places Jane Austen or Charles Dickens knew or take you on a time travelling experience through the streets of London uncovering the many layers of English history. London is a modern vibrant city and it is good to experience the atmosphere and enjoy the sites

I have a passion for where I live and I have my ideas for exciting trips that I could take you on. Of course, you too will have your ideas of what you would like to see and experience - I'd love to hear them!

  • Go at your own pace. See as much as you can or slow things down to a saunter. With your private guide, your day is flexible.
  • Benefit from a local's knowledge. Access more intimate, out of the way spots that have never seen a bus tour.
