I love London!

I love its vitality and variety. From its leafy landscapes to its packed streets lined with landmarks, from history and culture, to fine food and great entertainment, London is a city with something for everyone.

Let me help you discover this amazing city! As a Blue Badge Guide, I have the incredible privilege of being able to share London and my enthusiasm and expertise with others. So whatever your interest, schedule, whether you're an individual, family or group, I can create programmes tailored to suit your needs.

London has a compelling history. With my passion for the past, let me take you on a bespoke tour of one of it's many historic sites, such as St Paul's Cathedral, the Tower of London, Westminster Abbey, or one of the royal Palaces. London has a wealth of museums and galleries; let me show you the treasures of the British Museum or the National Gallery. Alternatively, we can head off the beaten track and explore London's hidden gems. With my insider knowledge, I can show you what makes London the living, breathing city it is today.

If you'd like to explore the wider UK, let me take you on a journey. Whether you're looking to visit Windsor, Stonehenge, Salisbury, Kent and Canterbury, Oxford, the Cotswolds, Stratford upon Avon or Bath, I can offer you a unique insight into this country's rich heritage.

*Recent Feedback*

‘We had a great time today. Your tour was perfect. The kids said they want you to come on holiday with us. They were politely indulging us by coming along to the tour but were totally converted by your informative and friendly manner.’

‘We had the absolute best tour guide this morning for the Tower of London tour. Her name was Alice and she was unreal. My kids were hugging her when she left us, she was so endearing! She handled the kids beautifully, answered their million questions and was super patient. I can't say enough good things so please pass on my highest appreciation!’

‘The family loved you and said you were the best guide of the their entire trip. Thank you for taking such great care of them!’

‘Alice was extremely knowledgeable, likable, and skilled in assuring everyone's understanding and comfort.’

‘Alice Trickey was a great guide. It felt like I was getting a custom, personalized tour. I really enjoyed the afternoon walks with Alice and the chance to pepper her with questions. I could not believe the amount of knowledge Alice has packed into her skull. She was also very good at sheparding the group around a busy city without insulting our intelligence. She was great.’
