“Guide Jess is a legend!  Very knowledgeable, passionate and witty.”

Jess has been a tour guide for over a decade now, but the buzz of London and the wonder of its hidden corners remains fresh and exciting. He especially loves the more weird and bizarre stories of London life and legends, ones that make you smile or question what you thought you knew.

Aside from pacing the streets and pointing at old buildings, Jess enjoys listening to music and podcasts, writing and living in a housing co-op. As well as tour guiding, he works as a volunteer coordinator for an East London community centre. As far as Jess knows, he has not been abducted by aliens, yet.


Rozie studied tourism, which inspired her to leave her home in Somerset and travel the world – she is now up to 81 countries across all 7 continents and has no plans to slow down anytime soon.

Before becoming a tour guide she would do almost any job that would take her somewhere new – she has worked as a tractor driver, a piranha keeper and even ran away with a circus!

Rozie fell into tour guiding when she realised someone was willing to pay her to travel and spent a year leading tours across Europe before settling in London where she has now been guiding for over a decade by foot, bus and boat. 

She spends her days off at London’s amazing museums and attractions, attending a show at one of our many theatres or daydreaming about where in the world she want to visit next.  Wherever Rozie goes, she feels that London is her home and she loves sharing it with our visitors.


Born and bred in London, Pepe has worked for over twenty years in the ever unfolding cultural hub of Bankside in Southwark, working at the internationally historical sites of The Rose Playhouse (Bankside’s First Theatre) and Shakespeare’s Globe. He has a special interest in the area around the theatres of Bankside – past and present.
Pepe has led many tours across London and some of England’s most iconic attractions. He has given presentations and lectures across the UK, Europe, North America and Canada as an invited guest at many universities, education institutions and societies. 
Pepe’s knowledge is much broader than just Elizabethan history and he has a good grasp of the history of London, offering all the popular tours but with a bit of a twist and a special insight. He has worked with some of the largest names in UK tourism but also loves working with small groups and private tours where he can be your London expert. 


Rachel is a California born and raised Anglophile. She moved to London in 2011 to pursue a master’s in Applied Theatre at the Central School of Speech and Drama, but promptly abandoned the west end stages for its streets, sharing her love of storytelling and passion for the city as a tour guide.
She covers a wide range of subjects from Royal Palaces to hidden corners of London, Harry Potter to Hauntings, and as the founder of London Loo Tours ( is one of London’s foremost experts on public conveniences.

When not guiding she can often be found morris dancing with the Belles of London City or attempting to keep up with her toddler, who takes after her by being into everything all at once.

Alex B

guide alex bird
Alex, began guiding in 2015 on top of open top buses, learning the craft and gaining the knowledge (as well as the awful jokes). You may still see him on the occasional open top bus, but he absolutely loves walking tours!

Over the years Alex has led tours about Sherlock Holmes, Jack the Ripper, the history of Rock and Roll, the Changing of the Guard, and many more. All this experience means that he can add a little sprinkle of something to a tour if it’s of particular interest to you.

He’s an actor too, which most people figure out by the end of the tour. Alex loves to bring high energy and storytelling skills to make tours fun and accessible. And be aware – he’s a great lover of Sleight of Hand Magic… Alex has yet to find a way to put that into a tour, so he’s open to suggestions!


Guide Paul re-sized

Paul has been a tour guide for long enough that he can’t quite remember how it all started but it definitely had something to do with falling head over heels in love with London and feeling he had to walk everywhere so as not to miss a single thing. If he wasn’t a tour guide he would essentially be doing it anyway so it only makes sense for him to be a tour guide.

He’s guided through almost every corner of Central London and says that it’s an honour for people to want to come to London, let alone for them to want to spend their hard earned time with him during their visit. To get across even just a small percentage of all he loves about London would be a joy and a job well done.

When he’s not walking London’s streets as a tour guide, Paul is out and about as a keen street photographer. 

Paul is the one in green.
