Hello, I am Sue Hyde - The Guide!

There is so much to do on a visit to London and the UK. So what kinds of things can you do with Sue Hyde The Guide?

ROYAL LONDON:  Palaces and castles that tell the rich history of our royal families up to the present day.

CHURCHES and CATHEDRALS: St Paul’s Cathedral for dramatic architecture and stunning views  and Westminster Abbey -  a very unusual church and not to be missed.

WALKS AROUND LONDON: Food and drink in London – Gay London – river Thames  – The old and new City of London – London Architecture Tour – Legal London – Royal Parks - Bloomsbury Squares – Hidden London around quirky Clerkenwell – Immigrant London in Spitalfields -Markets old and new

FAMILY FUN IN LONDON
Catch the exciting ceremony of the guard change, feed the ducks and squirrels at St James's Park; take a flight on the London Eye or a boat trip along the river; messy but delicious street food; look for weird and wonderful ancient stuff in the British Museum; ride on a red double-decker bus; learn how to navigate around the famous London Underground system; pretend to sail the oceans aboard ships like HMS Belfast, the Golden Hind or the Cutty Sark in Greenwich and whilst we’re in Greenwich let’s take a selfie on the famous Meridian time line ….endless opportunities!

MUSEUMS and ART GALLERIES
The history of European Art in the National Gallery; the wonders of human civilisation in the British Museum; gorgeous treasures of art and design in the Victoria and Albert Museum; the story of London in the Museum of London.

WORLD WAR II and CHURCHILL
Let me guide you around the place where Winston Churchill directed the war – the secret underground control centre known as the Churchill War Rooms as featured in the 2018 movie The Darkest Hour.
Looking for something different in London???  Let's talk and see if I can design something special for you.

OUTSIDE LONDON
Britain is truly great! Let’s visit magnificent royal palaces at Hampton Court or the Queen’s favourite home at Windsor Castle just outside London.  Let’s drive past the rolling green fields of England on the way to the stunning cathedrals of Canterbury or Salisbury, the ancient spiritual site of Stonehenge, historic Bath, academic Oxford and not forgetting Shakespeare’s Stratford-upon-Avon.

Here are a few comments from some of my recent tours:

"Really enjoyed Sue's tour up the pubs of Sydenham High Street the other week. Have lived here for fifteen years and it was great to discover so much new stuff about the neighbourhood - even if a lot of it revealed there was a lot more going on here back in the day! Great to finally discover what that funny little building on the bridge started life as, not to mention the fact that the railway line used to be a canal! Musical history of the neighbourhood is interesting too. As for the Great Scotch Egg Controversy... well, you'll have to do the tour yourself to weigh in on that one. Sue's a great guide, really enthusiastic and obviously knows her Sydenham onions. Highly recommended!" Luke London April 2021

"Sue is incredible! We organized a corporate tour at the British Museum for 20ppl. The British Museum asked Sue to deliver the tour, to our luck: she wasn’t just knowledgeable and courteous, but she was also funny and energetic, and you could really see she loved what she did. Everybody loved the tour! I fully recommend Sue; esp. if you ever want to invite your colleagues over for a couple of hours in the British Museum! EP Corporate Group - Oct 2019."

“Sue Hyde was a great Tour Guide. She was great with the children and so knowledgeable.” Tour with a Dance Group - June 2019
