Guided Tours

Rebecca Couper (Bex) is a qualified City of London Green Badge Guide passionate about sharing our ancient city's hidden side to a broader audience. As a former BBC producer, she’s used her skills as a consummate communicator to good use. She particularly loves revealing a different view of the city and still is astonished that our square mile, full of modern skyscrapers, has a Roman city buried beneath the streets. Walking in the footsteps of our ancestors is a particular interest.


She also loves the ‘untold’ story – the secret female investors who learned to gamble on the stock exchange in an era where women supposedly had no money of their own. And the fantastic female shop owners along Cheapside who ran profitable businesses in the ‘Oxford Street’ of the city. That love of the female pioneers transcends to Bow where she enjoys bringing the story of The Matchstick factory girls and the Suffragette, Sylvia Pankhurst to life.


Her regular walks include Roman London, Pioneering Women in the City, Lost Visions of the City, and Historical & Modern Buildings in the City.

When Bex isn’t walking and talking she loves discovering exciting new places to eat and shopping in the vintage outlets in our London markets.  She lives in Hackney with her family, two cats, and a dog.
