Sue Bingham

Greetings! I am so looking forward to welcoming you to London – whether it will be your first or umpteenth visit.

My aim is to ensure you have a thoroughly enjoyable time, seeing what you want to see, doing what you want to do, at the pace you wish to set. My strength lies in being flexible and relaxed whilst maintaining the highest professional standards during our time together.

I offer tours of all the popular London sights but will share with you unusual stories, hidden places, hints and tips on where to eat and drink, whether we are around the Tower of London or checking out the best viewpoint for Guard Change at Buckingham Palace.

Because I have additional accreditations for guiding in the City of London and the City of Westminster I am your ideal choice for walking tours. I really do know how to get from A to B avoiding the crowds and introducing you to the nooks and crannies, back streets and parks, alleys, footpaths and river routes you will never see from a car or a bus.

I can provide off-the-beaten track itineraries, getting away from the hullabaloo of the city for a short while: Hampstead, Kenwood House, Royal Botanic Gardens Kew. I also give tours of the quieter galleries and museums: Tate Britain, Courtauld Institute, V&A, RAF Museum, Museum of London, amongst others.

All of my tours are family friendly. Whatever your age or interests there is so much to see and do. I will always endeavour to make your time fun as well as informative.

So please tell me what you would like to do during your precious time in our city and I will be delighted to help you make the most of it.

About me:
Born in the Black Country, at the heart of England and university educated in Wales, I have lived and worked in London for over 30 years. I have two children, one a young medic and one studying archaeology.
My professional background is in finance. A qualified accountant I worked for the British Council, Britain’s leading international cultural relations organisation. I have travelled extensively for work and pleasure, worked closely with people of all cultures and have lived in France, Italy and India.

I am "Good to Go!" This Industry Standard mark (recognised by Visit England, the National Tourist Board of England) means that I follow government and industry COVID-19 guidelines, have a Risk Assessment in place and a process to maintain cleanliness and aid social distancing

Some client feedback:
"Sue went out of her way to give us a great experience.....just marvelous" (CW, CWR and WW2)
"...Sue goes significantly beyond the average tourist fare..."
"Sue was very informative, helpful and ready to answer all of my questions - highly recommended"
"I wasn't that bothered about visiting the British Museum, it was for my husband, but I am so glad I did!" (KH, USA)
"Thank you for being a most informative and personable guide. Your natural enthusiasm for the subject matter made our visit to the Abbey and the Tower very enjoyable" (PW, Canada)
“I just wanted to follow-up and let you know, again, what a wonderful time we had in London and how much we appreciated and enjoyed your company. Your knowledge and ability to answer all our questions was amazing. We couldn’t have asked for a better guide while we were there. St. Paul’s Cathedral was our very favorite and learning so much about it from you made it even better. Thank you again for making our trip better than we had hoped for!”
(C&M S, USA)
“An absolutely delightful person - we learned a lot from Sue on what was our fourth visit to the Abbey (JS, USA)”
And from my specific Churchill War Rooms tours:
“Sue was an amazing guide! Though we thought we came well prepared, we learned so much about the war and Churchill’s contribution from Sue. We highly recommend this tour and are most grateful to Sue for making this such a memorable experience”
“Sue was absolutely amazing. She brought the history of the War Rooms to life. My kids were thoroughly entertained.”
“Sue was great! She was not only very knowledgeable about the subject but also very enthusiastic. She did a great job engaging us.”
