I've been a tour guide in London for over 20 years now, and love showing people my city. It's lots of fun to surprise people with the hidden corners and unexpected moments, and it's great to see London afresh through the eyes of each visitor, to share their excitement at what they are seeing.
As well as being a London city guide, I tour the UK & Ireland. I am particularly interested in art, architecture and garden design, and enjoy nothing more than rambling around the English countryside, exploring villages, finding country pubs or somewhere quaint for afternoon tea.

I work with families and groups of friends. Whether this is your first visit to London, or you have visited many times, there is always something new to see. Most people choose to do a full day (7-8 hour) tour, but a half day or multi day tour is usually not a problem...

My name is Melissa and I am a London Blue Badge Tourist Guide. That means that I have been through an intensive training course so I can take you, your family, friends or work colleagues on an enjoyable, informative and professionally run trip around my wonderful home city and beyond.
Personally speaking, I have a friendly, outgoing and (some may say) witty personality. I previously worked in Public Relations agencies, so am used to presenting under pressure and I have even given stand-up comedy a try.
I am thoroughly enjoying my new career, which is much more of a vocation than a job

I became a Blue Badge Tourist Guide in 2005, registered with the Institute of Tourist Guiding, and received the award for the best guide in the gallery exams.
Since then, I've been leading numerous tours around London and the UK, both on foot and coach. Highlights of my career have included giving a talk about Tyburn on the radio and writing a book about the history of the British monarchy. I can also read a few Ancient Egyptian hieroglyphs and am trying to conquer the rest!

When when I first came to the UK I was only supposed to stay for a few months. But I fell in love with the country and the people and 19 years on I am still here. I can think of no better way to show how much I like living and working in London than being a Blue Badge Tourist Guide and helping people see my favourite city through my eyes.
I like London so much that when I was training to be a guide, I was awarded the best non-English guide award for my year!

I have been a tour guide for 18 years, mainly employed conducting Jack the Ripper Tours around the Aldgate East area of London.
I started doing ‘Jack the Ripper’ walking tours in the mid nineties and have been carrying these out ever since then.Over these years I have researched Jack the Ripper and examined most of the most famous theories and have now formed a personal opinion of the type of man 'Jack' must have been. I have a theory that answers the two most important questions. How was he able to extract organs rapidly, sometimes in the dark? How was he able to escape bloodstained throug
