Guided Walks in London

Welcome to my site.

I’m a City of London Guide, City of Westminster Guide, National Trust Guide, 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.

I also write articles. Historically these have had an exclusive London focus, but more recently I have done some general articles about life.. The current situation may mean that there will be a few more of these.

The pandemic has brought more online communication. Here is a short talk (c. 16 mins) I did for the London Historians group on the Victorian artist William Powell Frith: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JEdj2hyIi7M .

I am now well into a part-time Masters in Historical Research (MRes) through the Institute of Historical Research (part of the School of Advanced Study at the University of London). It means that I am unlikely to be doing public walks for a while, but I am happy to be approached on private commissions....as and when life returns to any sense of normality.

All best

Colin
