Winner of the Institute of Tourist Guiding's "Coach Guide of the Year 2016” and Go Make it Happen’s “Youngest Qualified Guide of 2016"

Hello, I’m Dominic and my passion is London, the global city which has something for everybody! Mind you, it’s a very big place, so my aim is to break it down and help you to make the very most of your time in the thriving metropolis.

I can guarantee that come rain or come shine, you and/or your guests will receive a warm welcome and a friendly smile from a local who is truly passionate about ensuring you have the best experience possible in London and the UK. My tours are designed to be informative, thought-provoking, entertaining and FUN!

As a Blue Badge guide, I can guide you at some of London’s most prestigious attractions….

Maybe you’d like to visit the mighty Tower of London, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and a real, living, breathing castle right in the centre of London!

Or…perhaps you’d like to go on a journey through English and British history with a personalised visit to wonderful Westminster Abbey, the Royal church, burial place of a great many monarchs and where Prince William was wed to Catherine Middleton in 2011.

If British history is not enough, I can take you on an adventure around the world and reveal to you some of the treasures of the British Museum that tell the story of human civilisation.

…AND outside of London a whole range of beautiful and interesting places await you. See where Harry and Meghan exchanged vows in the chapel at Windsor Castle. Sense the mystery and enigma of Stonehenge or admire the scholars, soaring spires and architectural beauty of Oxford

I enjoy working with all sorts of people including families, students, special interest groups and corporate groups. Let me know what's on your wish list and I will work with you to create the most memorable experience of London and the UK, tailored for you.

I look forward to being your guide and helping you to get the best out of London!

Ahead of the Pack: 6 of London's Top Dogs
