Being an introductory Exploration of London, the great City.


New travellers to London may wish an overview when visiting for the first time to this complex/beautiful Capital. This is the place to start.
Or, having already visited in the past, you may want a more detailed exploration of one particular area or concept whilst visiting.
This can be a bespoke tour for new or old visitors.
Perhaps you know much about British history already and would like to explore British colonial history here.
My background in the study of History, both of the UK, and London, as well as the influence of the incomers from past colonies, allows me to construct a tour of special interest to the customer. We can do a general walking tour or visit one or two specific sites. This is your chosen bespoke tour.

Itinerary

Depending upon the chosen interest of the traveller(s), we could explore various sites or themes. We can stick to the normal well-known sites of London, or branch out into individual interests, less-known sites, areas and themes.
Having specialised in 'The City', the oldest Roman area of London, and in 'Westminster' the Royal/Political area of London, I can do some back-street walking tours or even the usual 'changing of the guards'.
I have a particular interest in 'When London was Capital of America'--i. e that period of Colonial America before its Revolution and break away from England, for those of you who might have an ancestral link to that period of your own history.
Let me know what your particular interests are, and we can create a tour together.

Meeting Location + Tour Duration

Meeting location: I can meet travellers at their hotel or at an underground station or specific building where the travellers would like to start their tour.

End location: Depending of the wishes of the traveller, we can end the tour at an underground station close to the end of the tour with instructions on how and where to proceed from there.

Duration: 4 hours

Transportation

I use public transport normally.
A smaller group might wish to take a taxi, maximum 4 with a guide (5 altogether)
For a greater charge, I could arrange private transport (maximum 6).

What’s Included

The services of a qualified Blue Badge guide (highest guiding qualification awarded in the UK) who is able to enter any site in UK where guiding is permitted. I can therefore guide travellers in Westminster Abbey, St. Paul's Cathedral, the Tower of London, the Churchill War Rooms.....
Likewise, I can provide knowledge concerning further sites of interest for future days in and around London and the UK.

Estimated Local Cash Needed

20 pounds sterling - A half-day tour of your choice, could include an entry into one or two sites,
or one entry and a walk,
or simply a walk-about.
Sites, such as Westminster Abbey will cost around £20.
Taxis add on money. Whilst public transport will cost less. Walking is 'for free'
Some sites are free as well, such as the British Museum and the National Gallery.

What’s Extra

Entry into sites where there is a charge.
Food and drink.
Transport between sites and areas.

Restrictions

I guide using public transport and/or on foot. I can arrange private transport if required.
