Elizabeth Carew

Elizabeth Carew

I was born in the North of England but spent part of my childhood living in India and the Middle East. I moved to London for a year to study on a postgraduate course and never left - working, bringing up my children and developing my career in guiding here. Apart from a few years living in Japan and Singapore London has been my home for 30 years.

I believe there is something for everyone here, 2000 years of history rubbing shoulders in a contemporary city with modern architecture, fashion and art.

Whatever you are interested in, whether it is castles, palaces, traditions, galleries, museums or modern culture I can tailor a tour for you.

My bespoke tours include walking tours, tours by public transport ( bus/tube or train), or I can organise a car with a driver or a minibus. Within London we can cover the major sites--Westminster Abbey, Royal London, Changing of the Guard, Churchill War Rooms, St Paul's Cathedral, Tower of London or explore  less well known districts like Bermondsey, Shoreditch or Spitalfields. Out of London Windsor Castle, Stonehenge, Salisbury, Bath, Dover, Leeds Castle, Hever Castle are a few of the many wonderful places that can be easily reached in a day trip.

As well as being a Blue Badge Tour Guide ( the best qualification in guiding) I am also a City of London Guide, City of Westminster Guide and Tate Gallery guide, so wherever we go you'll be in good hands.

I hope to see you soon....

"Liz, thank you so much for our guided walk. I enjoyed it immensely - but I cannot believe, as a Londoner born and bred, that I am so ignorant about my hometown. You are sooo knowledgeable about so many things its just amazing. And I love the way you deliver the information in such an interesting and engaging way. Looking forward to the next one! Thank you again. "  Verity Lewis

“I booked Liz Carew for a half day tour of London with a group of friends.  I was unsure where exactly we should go and how long it would take.  Liz was really helpful in making suggestions to suit our interests and fine tuning the timing so that the tour was well paced.  She met us at the station, walked us to the Tate Modern picking out fascinating, unknown  gems of history along the way.  After the Tate we crossed the Thames to St Paul’s cathedral where Liz was able to guide us knowledgeably through all areas of the building, giving us statistical facts as well as stories of the many people associated with the building.   She also booked a local restaurant for us for the end of the tour. Liz answered any questions we had as we went along, the pace was perfect and she made sure we could all see and hear at all times – even those at the back!  I would highly recommend Liz for a tour.” Irene Goodman

“ Thanks for a truly informative day,  am now inspired to make a special study of the churches in the City” Isabel W
