Because one size doesn’t fit all.
After 8 years working in the London tour industry, we wanted to provide a more personal & premium alternative to the ‘take your photos and be back on the bus in 5 minutes’ approach.
We customise private tours lead by dynamic, passionate Londoners to give you the best memories of our beautiful city.
Our tour guides are the best in the business
Conducting private tours that offer more
Always listening to your needs & tailoring your tour to suit your taste, pace & style.
Meet the Team
Our team are all Londoners who have been selected for their expertise, passion and personality. Forget boring lectures, we provide a knowledgeable new friend who can bring out the best of London, all tailored to you.
Charley is the Founder of London Tailored Tours.
She set up on her own after six years working for the large bus operators, thinking: ‘this can be done better!’ She’s a foodie, a cyclist, and a lifelong Londoner. She loves to let you into secrets about where to find the best hot chocolate, the most authentic pub, and the garden no-one else knows about.
Charley is working mostly on running the business and tailoring your tours from our office. Email her at
firstname.lastname@example.org to have her tailor something unique to you.
Beatrice is the Operations Manager of London Tailored Tours.
She’s a foodie, fashionista, and fan of Victorian literature (she’s got a PhD in that, don’t you know). She can show you where to find that special antique, one-off vintage scarf, or the Rembrandt no one knows about. She is also the chief writer on our excellent
blog about all things London.
Catch her on one of our classic sightseeing tours,
London shopping tours, or food tours. Or email her at email@example.com for something tailored to you.
Linus is our Social Media Manager.
He’s a professional actor, improviser, and catwalk model (it’s because he’s originally from Sweden, where everyone is multi-talented).
He’s a passionate fan of Harry Potter, and he can tell you where to find that special edition book, the newest exhibition, or play that’s about to hit the big time. Find him on one of our
Harry Potter tours – or scrolling through our Instagram feed.
Jasmin loves to showcase London at its best, and that’s because she understands performance.
When’s she not delighting kids and hard-to-impress teenagers on our family tours, she’s acting as an 18th-century witch on the Cutty Sark in Greenwich or doing the occasional stand-up gig in the West End. She’s also a huge Harry Potter fan too (she’s in Gryffindor, obviously).
Meet Jasmin on one of our
classic tours of London or one of our Harry Potter tours.
David is an actor and musical theatre performer who’s always looking for the best London has to offer. From the best views to the best lunch spots, David has got it covered.
As a huge football supporter (Tottenham Hotspur and Bournemouth), David can also talk for days about theatre, arts, history, food and beer. He’s also a quizmaster, which makes him a king of trivia. Find David on the
Best of London or a Royal Morning in London tour.
Angus has lived in London all his life, and he’s got insider knowledge from all sorts of different jobs. He has stood on guard outside Buckingham Palace as one of the Grenadier Guards, he was a fire-fighter for over 30 years, and he’s even been a London cabbie in his time!
Nowadays he shares his love for Britain’s rich history – especially Shakespeare! – on his amazing tours. Find him on an
Art and Architecture tour, or even Inside the Abbey and Tower.
Jennifer is a musician, magician, and the world’s biggest fan of the bicycle. She’s originally from Belgium, and she fell in love with the UK as a teenager. Now she’s a Londoner and an expert guide, in both English and French!
Find her wearing one of her signature hats, or carrying her saxophone, on a
Best of London tour, or email us to have her design a specialist musical tour just for you.
Ken might be the coolest guide in London. Not only does he speak Japanese, German and Spanish but can talk comics/movies/theatre fluently. It’s no surprise he’s great with kids! He also knows a fair bit about Sport (NFL included) and is himself a keen boxer.
Ken can show you where Sherlock was filmed, where James Bond lives, and talk British football over a pint in the pub. Find him on our
Royal Morning Tour or Best of London in a Day.
Alan is a Southwark-dwelling tweed-jacket-wearing afficionado of all things London. (He has lived here his whole life, and he’s been touring for 20!) When he’s not surprising guests with Ripper or Rock ‘n’ Roll facts, he can be found hosting the pub quiz in Borough, or cycling around town on a Boris Bike.
Alan can show you the pub that Jack the Ripper drank in, and has many amazing stories about the Londoners he’s met over the years. Find him on the
Best of London tour, or have him create a pub tour tailored to you.
Neil is an East Londoner – he’s a Hackney boy, if you’re asking – who drives one of London’s new electric black cabs.
He’s full of knowledge (and not just
‘the knowledge’) about London, particularly the food scene, because he’s a bit of a gourmet. He’s the perfect choice for a day of sightseeing while seated, since the TX has a panoramic sunroof to watch London’s skyline go by.
Orginally from Dublin, Maurice is a proud London cabbie, who knows every road in London. Not only does he have
‘the Knowledge’ (the notoriously hard exam about all London’s roads) he has a tour guide qualification too. His handsome Mercedes vehicle can comfortably carry six people and is perfect for transfers and tours for anyone who finds walking difficult, or doesn’t fancy the London Underground.
Maurice loves going to the theatre and has all the best tips about getting the best seats at London’s best shows.
Hiro is currently very busy designing ‘London on Four Legs: The ultimate walking tour for dogs’ for London Tailored Paws. He can sniff out London’s best green spaces and his sense of direction is second to none. He loves running and socializing and urban foraging.
You can find Hiro keeping up morale in our office – or occasionally assisting a sightseeing tour.
London Tailored Tours is featured on many blogs, news and travel websites.
