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 more recently a London Taxi Tour Guide.
I am passionate about London's History, Architecture and Cultural Diversity. Over the years, I have developed a fascination with cultural influences and their contributions to London and its history, and in this, I have built an extensive knowledge. This has been one of the foundations for my tours where I specialise in connecting London to the rest of the world and every type of person that lives in it! I also 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 tour guide vetted by Liverpool's famous Cavern Club.
I enjoy fitness and spend time in my local community coaching at an Athletics club and a Boxing club (I offer Running Tours).
…Oh, and I love tea and coffee too! (and there's plenty of history there!)
Although my tours have a theme, they all incorporate the traditional sights of London along the way.
My services extend beyond London to help you make the most of your trip to the UK. Whether that is simply transportation or day trips, I can help. Where possible, we can combine both!
Thank you for reading and I hope to hear from you soon!
A Recent Review of this guide
Peter was great. He customized our tour to fit our interests by sharing America and Scottish history places and events in London. He had a plan and was prepared. This made our tour effective and efficient. If you enjoy history then you need to request Peter to be your guide around London. He was very friendly and kind to answer our questions. Peter loves London and knows it very well since he grew up here. Peter is great with all ages and his passion for history shines through as he shares

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.
