We encourage our Tour Guides to express their own style so we don't have a uniform.
What we do have, is these lovely #totallytailored bags, which or guides wear to identify themselves when you meet. Play your cards right and we might even gift you one when you're touring with us...
What better way to introduce our new exciting venture, than sharing our exciting news with our wonderful guides, partners, friends, families and colleagues. 🌟 🌟 🌟 🌟 🌟
We had a charming reception at Lant St Wine, one of London's best independent wine cellars. Not only did we talk all things Totally Tailored, we got to hear about everyone's wonderful summer season.
We feel so lucky to work with so many incredible people and are very excited for the future.

London was founded a whisper short of two thousand years ago. Impressive!
But where's the evidence I hear you cry?! Well, yes, we're a modern city too, but, below the surface are some incredible secrets.
Take for instance the roman walls built around the 2nd century AD. Ruins can be found near the Tower of London and along the aptly named street 'London Wall'. Also you'll find free to visit exhibits such as the London Mithraeum, built to showcase the Temple of Mithras and lastly the jaw dropping Roman amphitheatre which lies below the City of London Guildhall.
London is filled with secrets to unearth, which with two millennia of history, is no surprise!
Check back every Wednesday where we will be spilling the beans of more of London's forgotten past....
Here at Totally Tailored we're all about beautiful, cultural and vibrant places.
Whatsmore there is so much more to London than its flagship landmarks.
Stray a little further and we can take you to places like Notting Hill. Not just of Hugh Grant fame, this multi-cultural hub in West London has gorgeous houses, a fantastic market at Portobello Road and its annual carnival to celebrate the very best of West Indian Culture.
Book our Notting Hill Wander today using the link in our bio for a wonderful day out and unforgettable experience!...
Just an hour's train ride away from London is Brighton. A unique seaside city with a vibrant, bohemian culture.
This is the incredible Royal Pavilion in Brighton.
Just as many Londoners weekend by the seaside, as did the royals. The pavilion was built for HRH Prince of Wales, George, in stages between 1787-1811. He later became the Prince Regent....
Secrets of the City: Below our very feet are often the most outrageous secrets that can tell us all sorts about the places we spend our lives.
Below the busy streets of London can be found the River Fleet. Once a major canal and trading route to businesses in the medieval city. Over time the sheer volume of filth, sewage industrial waste and stench of the river had reached a deadly level.
Gradually from 1737- 1769, the river was enclosed.
As you'll see from the amazing pictures the river is still there! Little more than a sewage tunnel but winding its way even so, from Hampstead Heath all the way to Blackfriars Bridge. In Ludgate Circus the river can still be heard trickelling below....
