Originally from Cardiff, Wales, I have lived in London for 16 years, and I am passionately in love with this amazing City. I now live just outside of London, in Windsor, so if you'd like to see Windsor Castle, Windsor town, or Eton, I'm your man!

I started my professional life as an actor, so I'm passionate about the theatre, particularly Shakespeare, and I use these skills to make my tours lively and entertaining.

I'm a qualified City of London Green Badge Guide, so I'm especially passionate about what we call "The Square Mile": the oldest part of London, with its many winding alleyways and passageways, all of which tell a story! I'm also a Blue Badge Guide, the highest qualifcation for tour guides in the UK. As with all Blue Badge Guides, I can take you around Westminster Abbey, St Paul's Cathedral, the Tower of London, and highlights of the British Museum and National Gallery.

I'm a huge Harry Potter Fan, and I do Wizard's London Tours, which includes sights from the films, the books, and other movies filmed in London. I do a Jack the Ripper Tour that will bring to life the gory story that has fascinated people for over 130 years, but also explain the horrific circumstances of the East End of London at the time which brought these terrors about. Other tours I operate in London include a Rock and Roll tour of Soho, a Wartime London Tour (both by foot and by coach/car) and Shakespeare's London, Royal London, City of London, Westminster, Limehouse and Spitalfields tours. If you have any interesting requests of tailor-made tours, then please ask if I can do this for you.
I have a lot of experience taking tours out of London to many popular sights, including: Windsor Castle, Bath, Stonehenge, Oxford, Salisbury Cathedral, Hampton Court Palace, and my personal favourite, Stratford-upon-Avon
