I am a Londoner and I love to share my in depth knowledge of and enthusiasm for this great city with visitors from all over the world as well as fellow Londoners. The main purpose of my guiding is to have you enjoy yourself, be at ease and have fun as well as being informed and entertained. You will see sides of London, you have never seen before and didn't know existed. You will learn new stuff about London, which you cannot read in a book or on the internet. I have 20 years of experience as a Tour Leader and Tour Operator for groups travelling to London, Britain and USA-Canada. If you have a special interest in London, then please contact me for a suggestion for a guided walking tour or a guided visit to a museum, a gallery or another venue. I am a qualified London Blue Badge Tourist Guide and feel equally comfortable guiding groups from 1 to 50 people. The 29th of April 2011 I spent in a TV-studio in front of Buckingham Palace commenting on the Royal Wedding between Prince William and Catherine Middleton (the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge) for the national Danish television TV2. I was on the panel as the TV2's expert on the wedding venue and the coronation church, Westminster Abbey. You can book me for a guided tour of Westminster Abbey. I will also be commenting for TV2 on Prince Harry's and Meghan Markle's wedding at St George's Chapel, Windsor Castle. My other special interests in London are modern architecture (City of London and Canary Wharf), regeneration and construction (Crossrail, King's Cross, Docklands), literature (Dickens, Shakespeare, Bloomsbury), art (National Gallery, Tate Britain, Tate Modern), politics and war (Windston Churchill & Cabinet War Rooms, Imperial War Museum London), multicultural London (Spitalfields and Brick Lane) and The Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.

During Covid-19 the only guided tours available are outdoors guided walks as they allow for social distancing. Many attractions will not allow guided tours when they open to the public because of social distancing so busy sites like the Tower of London will be closed to guided tours. There are many great and inspiring options for guided walks in London: Royal London in Westminster, old London in the City of London with modern starchitecture, South Bank with the river Thames and institutions of culture, Spitalfields and Whitechapel - multicultural London and Street Art,  Greenwich - maritime history and the prime meridian where time begins, Royal Warrants - where the Royals shop in St James's, Soho and Chinatown - the beginning of pop music and London party centre, Chelsea - the swinging 1960s, music, fashion, art and loads of celebrities, South Kensington - Albertopolis, the Great Exhibition and national museums, King's Cross - railways, industry, redevelopment, tech, education, shopping and innovative architecture, Canary Wharf - the history of London as the biggest port in the world and the redevelopment to a major financial centre, The Olympic Park - what has happened since the 2012 Olympics. Other options are William Shakespeare, Charles Dickens, James Bond and Winston Churchill. You could also pick a theme like engineering, architecture, regeneration - or you could ask me to tailor a tour to a specific interest of yours.
