Most of my walks are based on a theme rather than concentrating on a single geographical area but I’m happy to discuss particular requirements.
I also lead group tours in Tate Modern, Tate Britain, St Paul’s Cathedral and the Guildhall Art Gallery.
Walks and gallery tours normally take between 90 minutes and two hours.
Private groups are very welcome, and most people book this way. The cost for any of the walks listed below, or for a gallery tour, is £200 for a half day, so for a group of 20 people it is £10 per head. If you’d like to combine two walks, or a gallery tour with a walk the the charge is £360 for a whole day. For everyone’s comfort the maximum sized group is usually about 30. For larger groups I recommend hiring individual remote audioguides. I can arrange this at a cost of £3.50 per person.
Most of my tours are for bespoke groups but occasionally I lead public scheduled walks. If you want to join my mailing list then drop me a line from the Contact Page.

If you have any special requests, I’ll be happy to discuss these, just get in touch.
