Have you ever wondered what your guide looks like before you meet them and go on a guided walk?

Hello, I'm Peter. I qualified as a City of London guide in 2015. I'm a member of the Institue of Tour Guides and a Green Badge holder.

Welcome to the city that is my home. I was born here, went to university here, work here and above all, have fun here! I've always enjoyed strolling around its hidden streets and alleyways, often discovering something new around each corner.

I've been very fortunate to have travelled and worked around the world for humanitarian organisations such as the Red Cross but the excitement, history and fascination of London has always drawn me back home.

I still get excited each time I learn or see something new, so why not come and join me on a guided walk?
