Guided Walks in London

Welcome to my site.

I’m a City of London Guide, City of Westminster Guide, National Trust Guide, Westminster Abbey Guide (Education Department), Life Member of London Historians, and former partner in a City law firm. When doing walks and talks I try to bring in knowledge, enthusiasm, and the ability to engage with an audience. For feedback, see my Reviews.

2018 so far has included a tour of City buildings, ancient and modern, for a private group, and a run of my Inns of Literature walk (see Walks page). I have contributed to the March Knowledge of the City programme (www.knowledgeofthecity.com), co-delivering Lecture 200 on the subject of Literary City. April activities have included a familiarisation tour of Legal London for aome University undergradutes. and a whole day tour of London sights for a group of US doctoral students, starting in Parliament Square and finishing in Brick Lane.

On the talks side, I have started a series of talks on the case of Irving v Lipstadt and Penguin Books (as became a film in 2017, Denial). I am also delighted to have made arrangements to run a walk and a talk for North London U3A over May/June.

All best

Colin
