Official Guides to the City of London

Robert French




General city tour, Literary tours, Religion, The Great Fire of London, The River Thames.


I'm Robert French, raised in New Eltham (South East London).  I've spent a lot of time over the last few years studying for two qualifications, reading and building a library about London.  I like quirky links between people and places, literature, singing and humour, so I try to keep my tours entertaining and light-hearted but grounded in fact.


I'm qualified as a City of London and Clerkenwell and Islington guide.

I have a good grounding in the workings of the City and its instituations through my other job as a finance manager - I'm a qualified management accountant and have been Head of Treasury for a major UK corporate.

Put that together and hopefully you get an enjoyable and insightful tour!

Guided Tours

Recently: Charles Dickens in the City, Roman London, London's River, City Computers (The Accountants' Tour), City Ages (the City through history), Great Fire of London. 

I specialise in commissions and themes, but am also happy to do a general introduction to suit.  For me it's important that the group has fun and gets what they want out of the walk.
