Or surprise me with an idea of your own!

This tour could be extended to a 4 hour tour, including two sites or one site and one walk or two walks. We can work out what suits you best.


We will meet at the closest tube station to the venue chosen and the tour will end at the same tube station if a chosen venue. If it is a walk, it would start at the closest tube station. It could be a linear walk, so the ending of the walk would be the nearest tube station to the end of the walk

Meeting Location + Tour Duration

Meeting location: If Westminster Abbey--at the West Front.
And so on according to the choice of the traveller.
A walk around 'the City' of London will start at St. Paul's tube station.
And so on according to the walk chosen

End location: The traveller will be directed to the nearest tube station to the end of the walking tour or site tour.
For example, if choosing to visit St. Paul's Cathedral, the end point might be at St. Paul's tube station.

Duration: 2 hours

As this will be a 2 hour visit or walk, it can be started at any time to fit in with your itinerary.



What’s Included

The services of a well-trained Blue Badge qualified guide who can guide to the site involved as well as offering advice concerning further excursions and opportunities in London

Estimated Local Cash Needed

7 pounds sterling - You will need to pay for local transport--usually £6.60 per day.
There could be an entry charge depending upon the choice of visiting a site. If you have chosen a site which entails payment, it is about £20. Some sites are free, such as the British Museum, the National Gallery.

What’s Extra

Transport costs.
Some entry charges, such as the Tower of London, Westminster Abbey, St. Paul's Cathedral, Kensington Palace, the Cutty Sark and the Royal Observatory set their prices at approximately £20, but have reductions for over 60s and children.


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