Tim Barron

Following a degree in environmental sciences, I became a professional actor and musician working in and around London for many years. So whether it’s art galleries, theatre, popular music or science and technology that interests you, I would love to show you London and all it has to offer.

If you choose to visit outside London then; Stratford, Salisbury, Stonehenge, Bath, Oxford and Canterbury are all possibilities. I am happy to work with all ages; individuals, families or groups. A special interest of mine is the history of transport; cars, buses, planes, the military and our industrial heritage.

Don Brown

I’m a graduate of Oxford university and the Director of the London Society. After a career in publishing I became a guide in 2016 – favourite places include the British Museum, the Imperial War Museum and Churchill War Rooms, Bletchley Park, St Paul’s Cathedral and Soho.

Leo Heaton

I am an award-winning guide offering fun and informative tours. I originally trained in musical theatre and performed professionally for several years, and then spent a decade working in very corporate environments – in high-end hospitality and as a Private PA and Executive Assistant. I specialise in gallery and museum tours, theatre history, street art, and the secrets of the City of London, and I especially love guiding children – their enthusiasm and excitement for things grown ups often take for granted is always a joy to see.

Emma Matthews

I’m a Londoner with degrees from Cambridge and London Universities in law and history of art. I was a barrister and government lawyer, then moved into the arts while bringing up children. I ran a bespoke art tours business before becoming a full time guide. 

Rachel Pearson

I’ve lived in London since I was three years old, which means I’ve done all my schooling here and went on to spend eleven years working in the corporate world, so I can provide an insider’s perspective on the capital’s numerous attractions and rich history, as well as being able to show you some of the great places around the UK, including Bath, Stratford Upon Avon and Oxford.
