Official Guides to the City of London

John Halligan




Romans, Samuel Johnson, Samuel Pepys, The Great Fire of London, City churches, General city tour.


I have had a life-long interest in history. Since qualifying as a City Guide I've developed twelve walks in and around the City of London, including Spitalfields, Bloomsbury & Southwark. I have delivered bespoke walks on Roman London for school parties and have a walk and talk on Samuel Pepys.

I use a voice amplifier when needed and distribute ‘Highlights of my walk’.
