As well as being an experienced Blue Badge Tour Guide (the ultimate qualification in guiding) I am also a City of London Guide, the City of Westminster Guide and Tate Gallery Guide, so wherever we go you'll be in good hands. Only Blue Badge guides are permitted to guide in certain locations, such as Westminster Abbey and the Tower of London. My aim is to provide you with enthusiastic informative private tours which ensure that your London experience will be the best.
I was born in the North of England but spent part of my childhood living in India and the Middle East. I moved to London for a year to study on a postgraduate course and never left - working, bringing up my children and developing my career in guiding here. Apart from a few years living in Japan and Singapore London has been my home for 30 years.
I believe there is something for everyone here, 2000 years of history rubbing shoulders in a contemporary city with modern architecture, fashion and art. Whatever you are interested in, whether it is castles, palaces, traditions, galleries, museums or modern culture I can tailor a tour for you.
My bespoke tours include walking tours, tours by public transport ( bus, tube, boat or train), or I can organize a car with a driver or a minibus. Within London we can cover the major sites--Westminster Abbey, Royal London, Buckingham Palace, Changing of the Guard, Churchill War Rooms, St Paul's Cathedral, Tower of London or explore less well-known districts like Bermondsey, Shoreditch or Spitalfields. Out of London Windsor Castle, Stonehenge, Salisbury, Bath, Dover, Leeds Castle, Hever Castle are a few of the many wonderful places that can be easily reached in a day trip.
I hope to see you soon. . . .
A Recent Review of this guide
On my first ever visit to London, I had a private 8 hour city tour with Liz. I contacted her ahead and asked her to customize as she desired to show me "what an American should see on one day in London". She did a superb job: she is incredibly knowledgeable about British history, the locations we visited, and even took me to a couple of "special" spots: such as an operating room theater/museum - as I am a physician. Cannot rate her highly enough! I will be contacting her for my next visit to London.
