Nigel H.

London, England, United Kingdom

Hi, my name is Nigel. I am a former History teacher and have been a professional Driver Guide in the UK for over 5 years.

I believe Tour Guiding is all about sharing knowledge, experiences and stories and having some fun along the way!

London has been my home for the past 25 years and I have a real passion this remarkable global city. Britain has so many exceptional places to visit. It's a wonderful country to be a guide as there is so much history in every town and village and on every street.

I am fully licensed and offer a range of customised, private One Day Tours and Multi-Day UK Driving Tours from London and also Shore Tours for cruise travellers from Tilbury and Southampton.

I will work closely with you to design a unique, customised tour for you and your group. We will tour at a pace to suit you and I am always happy to redesign and make changes to the tours as requested.

My vehicle is a comfortable SUV Kia Sorento car with 5 passenger seats and air conditioning. I have a Private Hire Licence and full insurance.

For some fascinating history, amazing sights and good food, travel with me to incredible places like Bath, Windsor, Stratford, Stonehenge, Oxford and The Cotswold Hills. You can discover the lovely villages of Kent and the dramatic scenery of Dorset, Devon and Cornwall to name just a few of Britain's highlights.

There are a wide range of fascinating places just a short drive from Central London. I run Day Tours to Royal Windsor and Hampton Court as well as Churchill's home at Chartwell. If you have an interest in World War II, the Churchill War Rooms, the RAC museum at Hendon, the Battle of Britain bunker in Uxbridge and Fighter Command HQ are also well worth a visit.

If London is your focus, walk or drive with me to see the historic sights linked to the British Royal Family in Westminster. Explore the ancient City of London with its Roman origins, hear stories of its colourful history and enjoy its spectacular architecture. See the Tower of London, Westminster Abbey, the Houses Of Parliament, Buckingham and Kensington Palaces, Trafalgar Square, Piccadilly Circus, St Paul's Cathedral, The Southbank and the West End and the East End.

I also offer walking or driving tours to the many world class museums and galleries that London has to offer.

For those wanting to experience London's range of gastronomic delights, I offer walking tours to some of London's Historic Pubs and to Borough Market with its huge range of international street food.

I have this year added tours around the Harry Potter and Sherlock Holmes film and TV sites as well as a Winston Churchill walking tour visiting many of the places that he frequented during his remarkable life.

I have been fortunate to travel to over 70 countries and have met some remarkable people and some amazing tour guides. I love meeting people and I can create opportunities for you to meet and speak with locals and gain an insight into their way of life whether that is in London or in all the other places we visit.

I am really looking forward to meeting and getting to know you and sharing the many rich experiences that this country can offer.

A Recent Review of this guide

Nigel was an outstanding guide. We had a truly wonderful trip to Stonehenge and Bath, with intriguing information, excellent driving, wonderful food, and just fun company. This was a true highlight to our trip. I look forward to returning in the fall and will request Nigel's assistance with our adventures.
