Guide About Town

Whether you are looking for a bespoke tour of a famous landmark or soemwhere more off the beaten track, a guided walk to celebrate a birthday (perhaps with a pub or two along the route!) or other social occasion, you have reached the right page. Congratulations!

My name is Isobel and I guide in both French and English. I am an award-winning London Registered Blue Badge Tourist Guide. That means I am a professional, trained guide. Like many of my colleagues I am passionate about London and ever so slightly obsessed.

I guide in all the must see sites; places like the Tower of London, Westminster Abbey, the British Museum, the Palace of Westminster. Let me take you around the known and lesser known parts of the capital; the side streets, the hidden places, the areas that are not in the guide books. Whether you are interested in women’s history, local London, or the hidden histories behind the capital, I am sure I shall be able to put together a tour that meets your interests and needs.

You can book me for a specific tour; ask me to create a bespoke one; enjoy a tour with friends and family, or bond with work colleagues, perhaps calling in at a pub or three as we go. If you have any questions, just leave a comment on this page or tweet me @guidedbyisobel and I’ll get back to you.

Often I lead walks for a company called London Walks. Individuals turn up at the meeting point and pay for the walk. They do not need to book.

Half day tours start from £170.00, see the Association of Professional Tourist Guides for further details and cancellation policy.

    1. Thank you. I have a particular interest in Brunswick Park as my father was born in Brunswick Square.
      Next weekend I am leading a public walk in the City. I’ll post about it soon.


      1. Well no, I don’t have to wear blue, but it is one of my favourite colours.
        I don’t lead tours by bike, but if you were interested I am sure it could be arranged.


    1. Thanks Ellie. I am very pleased that you like the blog. It is an award free zone, but I am chuffed you nominated it. Thanks again.


  1. Hi Isobel!!

    My name is Laura and I am a Programme Manager for the American Institute for Foreign Study and I have a group that would be coming to London in May 2014 and are very keen to take part in your Fair Maids, Feminists and Philanthropy tour. Would I be able to book a private tour with you for this group of approx 10 students and 2 professors?

    Looking forward to hearing from you – thanks!!
