Rachel M.

London, England, United Kingdom

My name is Rachel and I am born and bred in London.

My family have been in London for around 300 years. I have a passion for London and the UK, its many stories and social history.
I also love music and love to share some of the iconic venues and stories of bands gone by.
I have been a teacher of both children and adults and have been a market trader travelling Asia before doing the Knowledge of London to become a Black Taxi driver. I took 3 and half years learning all the streets of London and have been a qualified driver for 8 years.

I have always had an interest in Social history and went on to do my London Taxi tour guide badge 2 years ago. I have continued my studies to include art and culture in 18th and 19th Century London. This enables me to include art galleries and museums in my tours with some knowledge.

I Have a real Passion for what I do and work hard to ensure my tours are personal to each of my clients.
I celebrate the diversity of my city and hope you will get a sense of the amazing people that have been here before us to make this city what it is today.

I believe there is no better way to see London than with a London Cabbie.
And with our knowledge of all the streets we are able to navigate the city like no other drivers.

I welcome enquiries and am able to build you a bespoke tour that includes interests you may have.

Many Thanks Rachel :)
