Nothing says 'London' more than a good traditional British pub! Try some of the best Ale's in the world over a traditional Sunday Lunch in a here in the capital. My favourite is 'The George Inn' by London Bridge - where it is said both Charles Dickens and William Shakespeare have had a pint or two!

London is a collection of unique villages. Each have their own distinct characteristics. Whether that be food, history, buildings or accents. Try and experience as many different parts of London as you can. Or more importantly...talk to the locals!
When not gallivanting around London with tour groups in tow, artist and actor Katie can be found gallivanting across the various theatres and stages of England, trying her hand at the life of a professional actor. Despite being dangerously close to a 'proper' job, she has found she really, thoroughly enjoys putting her Cambridge history degree to good use as a tour guide in various locations around the country - ask her about church architecture or the etymology of her favourite place names and you'll have a friend for life....

A quiet English pub may be a quaint place to have a drink, but put out your feelers and see if you can find any of London's many speak-easies and secret bars and have your own adventures while you're here.
A lifelong Londoner, Louis splits his time between tour guiding and working for a charity. He loves meeting new people from around the world and sharing the city with them.

Fancy a selfie outside the famous door of 10 Downing Street? Well, unless you feel like scaling the fence and getting tasered, head down to 10 Adam Street just off the Strand. The door looks just like the real thing, and your friends at home will be none the wiser!
Nathan has two passions – theatre, and history. Conveniently, he’s managed to find a job that allows him to express both passions simultaneously, and so he is always doing all he can to bring London’s rich history to life through dramatic arm movements, expressive eyebrows, and below par jokes. He also studied philosophy at university, and so will always be willing to have a chat about anything you like, be it existentialism, current events, or even (especially) the meaning of life.
