Entertaining and informative private London tours with an award winning professional London Tour Guide

Hello, I am Gavin Webb, a qualified London Blue Badge Tour Guide (Britain’s official professional tour guides). Experience London with me and explore the best London has to offer. From world class museums and galleries to famous sites such as Westminster Abbey, St Paul’s Cathedral and the Tower of London, I will ensure you get the most out of your visit.

I can show you London’s hidden treasures such as atmospheric alleys, hidden gardens, unique shops and the quirky details that make a tour memorable as you discover London’s past, present and future.

Travel like a Londoner on the famous red buses, tube or black taxis, and then on foot – the best way to experience London. All my tours are fully customised to your interests and flexible on the day to take account of any special events taking place or the weather. With your own private guide you will have the time to fully experience London, stopping to take the perfect photo or popping into one of the shops, cafes or pubs we pass.

I was first awarded a Certificate of Excellence from TripAdvisor based on the 5 star reviews I have received in 2011. After the challenges of the COVID pandemic, I was very pleased to be awarded a TripAdvisor Travellers’ Choice award in 2021 and again in 2022.

I am delighted to have been named the Luxury Travel Guide’s London Tour Guide of the Year in 2018 and again in 2019.

Covid-19 UPDATE:

I am certified for safe tourism via the World Travel and Tourism Council (WTTC) international “Safe Travels” stamp. I am fully vaccinated having received the Pfizer/BioNTech booster in 2022 and 2021 and both doses of the Oxford AstraZeneca vaccine. I am happy to do a rapid lateral flow test before meeting clients and to wear a high protection face shield if required. I have spare face masks and hand sanitiser for my clients should they require them.

London is open! Shops, hotels, restaurants, attractions, museums and theatres have reopened so it is a great time to visit without the crowds. Even in the usually packed summer season, I always find quiet, atmospheric backstreets for my clients. Now that is even easier. With its 2000 years of fascinating history, its distinctive neighbourhoods and its exciting contemporary side, there is so much to discover.

Virtual London tours are now available! If you are not able to visit London at the moment, don’t worry, London can come to you in the comfort of your own home via one of my virtual tours.

You could make it a watch party with other friends. They are also ideal for clubs and societies who are looking for more events to provide their members.

Virtual tours make a unique and memorable present for someone.

Using a mix of photos, maps, video, Google Streetview and my live commentary, these virtual tours last about an hour with plenty of time afterwards for questions.

Explore the development of London’s distinctive neighbourhoods and why they have such different architecture; take a virtual Whitehall wander; discover London’s ceremonies and customs; hear the background of some famous sites so you can make the most of a future visit; explore the vibrant street art of Shoreditch or walk back in time to Shakespeare’s London.

Whether it is in person or via a virtual London tour, I look forward to welcoming you to the world’s greatest city.
