Angela Akehurst Private tour guide in London - United Kingdom

Angela Akehurst

Guide profile:

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 can offer private tours for up to 6 people in my VW Caravelle (click through the photos to see it), walking tours, and tours using public transport. I also guide minibus or coach tours for larger groups.

Fees for private tours on foot or using public transport range between £165-£270 (GBP). Private tours by car range between £350-£700 (GBP) depending on time and distance.

Below you will see a small selection of tours; really they are just a guide to what's possible. The advantage of having your own private guide is that you can get involved in designing your own tour and go only where you want to go!

I am a member of the Institute of Tourist Guides and of the Guild of Registered Tourist Guides. These give me my qualification as a guide and my insurance as a guide.

An outstanding morning with our Excellent Tour guide Angela Morgan.

Angela's tour was efficient, well planned and comfortable, as she gave us the historical background and valuable insights about the Westminster area over the years.

The value of this tour, loaded with much historical and even present day intrigue & information, is experiencing it in person rather than just reading history.

Tour Guide Comment: Thank you to Angela Morgan who saved the day when I hurt my foot and couldn't walk!! A great guide, as ever!!!

We, a family of three members, had a wonderful Walking tour of Westminster with Angela as our guide. She has great knowledge of Westminster area and the rest of London and it was a very enlightening experience for all of us who were first time visitors to London. Her description of the history behind the monuments in London was very comprehensive. She was helpful, witty and and offered us many suggestions for the rest of our stay in London. A great tourist guide specially for first time visitors

We had a terrific time with Angela. We could have never experienced everything on our list without her! Angela provided the historical background information we requested and peppered the tour with some contemporary surprises. We highly recommend Angela and can't say enough good things about our experience. She's the BEST!

We had a rather short stay in London on a layover from Nairobi to Toronto. Angela fine tuned a tour to meet our needs and ensure we got back to the airport on time. Her knowledge of London, both current and historical, was impressive. I believe we saw (and experienced) parts of London that we never would have with a 'canned' tour.
