Bridget Egel Andrews

I’m a very welcoming and friendly American who has been living in London for over 20 years. My passion and enthusiasm for this great city is matched by an in depth knowledge of its history and treasures. Join me to discover London’s rich heritage in comfort and style for a relaxing and memorable day!

Let me show you around. Whether it’s Buckingham Palace, Westminster Abbey and the Banqueting House, the Cabinet War Rooms; or the Tower of London and St Paul’s cathedral; or Bankside with Tate Modern, Borough Market and the Globe theatre. I’d be delighted to be your guide.

If you want to venture further afield we could visit Royal Windsor; Greenwich; or Bath, Oxford, Canterbury. These are a few possibilities, just ask or look at my website.

I offer walking and/or public transport tours around these major sites and many lesser known sites and attractions. As a professional guide I will help you to make the most of your visit.

I’m happy to act as your guide combining public transport and walking. For larger parties, I will be happy to arrange a minibus. I offer individualised, themed walking tours, for example, the City of London or/and Westminster.

If you would like a half day walking tour of Westminster we could start at Westminster Abbey, before going to Buckingham Palace via St James’ Park, take in 10 Downing Street, Horseguards, the guard change, Trafalgar Square, maybe lunch at Covent Garden, or Whitehall. If you would like to make this a full day, we could visit the National Gallery, Soho, Piccadilly, Mayfair and Park Lane. I’d be very happy to discuss these and other options to meet your interests and requirements.

I am a London registered Blue Badge Guide - the Blue Badge is the most highly acknowledged accreditation in the guiding profession here in the U.K. I am a member of the Institute of Tourist Guiding.

Please contact me with any questions and for more information. I look forward to guiding you around this fab city and beyond.

What people have said about my tours:

"I am writing to say thank you for the most wonderful day imaginable in London. We thoroughly enjoyed our day with you and it was in fact, the highlight of our trip! You are charming, informative, fun, professional, energetic and the perfect luxury tour guide!”

"We recently hired Bridget for a full day tour by car during a quick trip to London. She picked us up in her lovely small Mercedes and was instantly friendly, energetic and engaging. Having already seen many of the " top ten attractions " and having done the hop on hop off bus the previous day we asked to see some of the " hidden gem attractions". On her suggestion we saw The Wallace Collection, John Soane Museum, The Hunterian Museum at the British College of Surgeons and The Courtauld Museum and had lunch at a 400 year old pub! Bridget was knowledgable about art architecture history and general London info. It was a great use of a day in London."

"Our experience with Bridget was more than we had imagined. She picked us up after breakfast in a comfortable Mercedes and started educating us within minutes. She's from the US but has lived in London for decades and loves it with the enthusiasm of a college history major. As she navigated traffic with the aplomb of a cabby she drove us to site after site, telling us interesting and memorable stories about each spot we drove by. We got out of the car at several locations and had more of a look-see with Bridget at the helm. She's a lovely person - easy to talk to and be around. To be honest I wasn't initially thrilled with the idea of spending the money on a private tour, but my husband talked me into it and I'm so glad he did. The tour totally changed our experience of London and, actually, our whole vacation. SO worth the money! I would heartily recommend this experience for any traveler who's looking to add more depth and value to their London visit."

"Booked a full day Londay tour with Bridget for myself, wife and two teenage daughters. Bridget picked us up at our hotel in a comfortable Mercedes. Rather than just taking us to the standard tourist attractions, she spent some time talking to us about our interests and what we wanted to see. She then arranged the day to accomodate our interests. Bridget is personable and extremely knowledgeable about all things London. As we made our way attraction to attraction, she pointed out points of interest along the way providing interesting insights and comments. As a registered tour guide, we avoided all the long queues at most attractions.......very convenient and time saving. All in we had a great day. By the end we felt like we were riding and sightseeing with a London friend rather than a tour guide. Would not hesitate to book another tour with her."
