I grew up in London's multi-cultural east end and spent most of my youth as an amateur boxer which meant I was lucky enough to travel and compete abroad regularly. During this time, I lived in the USA receiving a warm welcome and great hospitality wherever I went. This is something I really value, and something I enjoy giving whilst sharing my love of London. In 1994, I completed the 'Knowledge' of London and became a London Taxi Driver, and later a London Taxi Tour Guide.
I offer tours both in and out of the taxi with so much of London to be appreciated on foot!
I am passionate about London's History, Culture and Architecture. My Traditional Tours offer something for everyone with interesting and fun facts supporting the classic sights of London. I once gave a tour to a family with four generations ages 9, 13, 17, 50 and 90!
I enjoy popular culture In London from the 1960s and 1970s. I have an association with Liverpool, another great cultural city and birthplace to 'The Beatles'. I am the only London Beatles Tour guide vetted by Liverpool's famous Cavern Club.
The Victorian era in London particularly interests me as you will notice from my Sherlock Holmes and Watson Tour!
The Traditional, Beatles and Sherlock Holmes Tours are ready to book please check them out - there is plenty of choice!
I also offer a Bespoke Tour service to cater for your particular interests and allow for combinations of tours. For example, we can combine themes from the published tours and there is an endless list of other themes to choose from. Listed below are ideas:
•Maritime and Voyages of Discovery
•Architecture and Engineering
•Art and Performing Art
•Pubs and Clubs
•Tea, Coffee and Sugar History
•The open air and green spaces to be enjoyed in London's parks, hidden nature reserves and city farms
If you'd like to build a bespoke tour please provide me with details including a list of the themes that interest you, how long you'd like the tour, and where you would like the tour to start (e. g. hotel or train station).
Thank you for reading and I hope to hear from you soon!

Whether it is your first or your 50th visit to London Peter's tour will be a treat. You see many famous spots, but get the back story you won't read about. He is also willing to tailor the tour on the fly to be sure you learn about what interests your group. He has a wealth of knowledge and followed up with links to each spot we visited.

I am not a Blue Badge Guide. If your tour includes visits to historical monuments such as Tower of London, St. Paul's Cathedral, Westminster Abbey, I can accompany you but cannot guide you inside them.
