Leon Barclay

Hi, I'm Leon a guide born and raised in London. I have extensive local knowledge and in depth historical knowledge meaning I'm ideally suited to take you around this amazing city I call home.

Before becoming a guide I had many different roles, from owning my own small business to graphic designing and youth work. I have a Politics, Philosophy and Economics degree with a strong interest in Sociology.

If you want an overview of London and its history - I've got you covered, if you want to explore some of our famous sites including the Tower of London, Westminster Abbey, Churchill War Rooms or delve deeper and peel back the layers exploring our many markets, street art, quirky London or hidden London - no problem let's do it.

I have a can-do attitude and want to make sure you have the best experience with someone not just trained in the historical aspects but also explore with someone who brings a locals perspective.

I find the social impact of historical events fascinating and will link past events with their current impact, making complicated history easy to digest.

If you're looking for a personable guide who can work with people from all backgrounds be it families with children, corporate groups, students and everything in-between while keeping you entertained and tailoring your visit to your needs - look no further!

I am able to arrange vehicles and organise large group tours if required, chauffeur cars, minibuses and large coaches (buses), if you're looking for everything to be organised and arranged for you then I am more than happy to be your one stop shop.

Here are a few reviews from previous clients:

"Booked this tour through our hotel and was not disappointed with the concierge's recommendation. Our tour guide Leon, was amazing. Full of wonderful information and an amazing storyteller". Salina from California - Stonehenge and Bath tour

"Leon was undoubtedly the best tour guide we've ever had. His knowledge of what we saw was complete, but better still were the tidbits of local knowledge he shared that enriched the whole day's experience. He is thoughtful and kind and seemed to care deeply that each person had a most pleasant and memorable day. Almost unbelievably, he accomplished this while displaying a keen wit that had us in stitches a good bit of the day". Mark H - Windsor Castle and London Tour

"Wow. What a great tour. Our knowledgable tour guide Leon went above and beyond to show us a good time". Carmella P - London Tour with Guard Change, St Paul's Cathedral and Tower of London
