William J.

London, England, United Kingdom

Hi and welcome to the magnificent metropolis and historical minefield that is London, England.

My name is Will and I have been driving a London Taxi around the cities streets for the last 17 years. I am also a qualified London Taxi Tour Guide which allows excellent access to many of London's attractions in my modern, fully air-conditioned London Black Taxi.
I was born in North London and am a father to three daughters and a grandfather to my grandson Noah.
I have always been massively interested in all aspects of history. From back in my school days, where I studied History and Ancient History, to the modern day where I am often found with my head in a history book when I am not working or guiding. I am especially passionate about the history of London, the city I was born and raised in. I have always loved sharing my historical knowledge, enthusiasm and experience of London with anybody and everybody with similar interests, whether that be purely historical or linked to more modern, themed interests.
I also make yearly Armistice day visits to Ypres, in Belgium, where the British were based in the Great War.
My other interests include running my own Krav Maga self-defence school and virtually all sports. I also enjoy meeting and learning from the many people I meet whilst guiding. As the old adage goes "Every day is a school day".
I pride myself on providing interesting, informative but mainly fun days with my clients and I really look forward to hearing from you and to showing you around my great city.
If you want a personalized tour, different from my offered ones, please just ask, we will create together the perfect trip for your wishes. I'm at your disposal also for the multiday tours.
