Discover classic sights of London both old and new! My routes are planned to optimise viewing and photographic opportunities whether on the move, stationary or walking around the sights. I enjoy taking photos and can help you build a memorable portfolio of your trip.
My extensive historical knowledge will add context to your experience …
Learn the fascinating history of the monarchy back to 1066 up to the present day as we admire the Tower of London and Buckingham Palace.
Understand British political origins and developments whilst taking in the sights of the Houses of Parliament and Big Ben.
Just next door, appreciate the links between politics and the monarchy as we explore Westminster Abbey and compare its beautiful architecture to that of St. Paul's Cathedral.
Appreciate the contrast of old and modern architecture that shapes London's impressive and evolving skyline.
Enjoy some of the best views of London as we cross the River Thames over famous bridges, tourist attractions in their own right!

A Recent Review of this tour

We did a custom taxi tour with Peter M and it was a lot of fun and informative. Peter is very thoughtful and sought out different sights that he knew we would be interested. He knows London exceptionally well and is personable. A traditional London taxi is spacious and comfortable; he also has great spots to park while we walk to some sights. I highly recommend Peter
