Overview

I've lived in London all my life and love the city. I'm a City of Westminster and Clerkenwell & Islington Tour Guide and lead mostly food and drink themed walks in places such as St James's and Mayfair and hidden historic pub tours in Belgravia and Marylebone. Other walks include areas such as Clerkenwell, St Luke's, Walthamstow and Chingford. All my walks include both historical and current information (ie unusual places for afternoon tea) and you will receive a handout listing these details.

What a great walk, loads of history, places you would never find without a guide. Jo is a great, knowledgable guide, it's just a fun thing to do. Great way to find pubs, shops, streets that would would not even know where there

Excellent tour of curiosities and hidden history of Soho - although I work in the area I learnt a lot about the scandals and stories hidden away in this maze of streets.

Great experience. Everywhere we turned there was something new. Wear comfortable shoes, bring extra layers of clothing (the nature of the event means standing around a bit), and an open mind - open to the London you may not know about.

Thanks Jan for your good review. Was your guide my colleague Ray Coggin? If not I wonder if you have in fact put your review in the wrong place as Ray is the only male guide I have recently worked with.
