Having spent over 30 years as a Dental Surgeon working within four walls, I was looking forward to getting out in the open air and sharing my passion for London with others. I believe in making walks interesting and not just full of facts. Above all I want you to enjoy the tour and have fun while we walk around. For me guiding should be like wandering around with an old friend who you can ask questions of, learn a little and get a feel for a different place. I have a strong voice and am a good communicator. Most importantly I love London - in particular the 'City of London' which is the original city founded by the Romans, sometimes known as 'the square mile', it is steeped in history and is today one of the world's leading financial centres.
There are so many different aspects to this great city and I'd love to share them you.

Richard provided a remarkable tour and running history lesson that was appropriate for both established and new London travelers. He was responsive to our suggestions and he encouraged questions. It was an excellent post flight from USA tour.

Please note that there are separate guides for inside tours of St Paul's Cathedral. There are no other restrictions to my guiding within the City of London.
