Hi I'm Matt. Apart from appearing on random TV shows in the Ukraine and Quebec, I am seen most days walking around London, showing people the sights, with an emphasis on the Hidden, Quirky, Forgotten and downright Bizarre side of London. I love unearthing the weird and wonderful, and taking people to see places which are 'hidden in plain site'. So many stories to tell!

The experience

Hi, I’m Matt, an accredited tour guide lecturer, with an insatiable appetite and energy for all things to do with London. I have spent a long time researching and developing my walks, and I hope my enthusiasm for them rubs off on you!

This is the London walking tour which will ensure you are in the best position possible to see the extraordinary Changing the Guard ceremony while avoiding the crowds at the gates of Buckingham Palace. Rather than standing still for hours, we see various stages of the ceremony, including the inspection, Old Guard, New Guard, Palaces, and even march alongside the Guards and Ceremonial Bands!

I'll make sure you leave with an enviable set of pictures, an insight into what is going on, an anecdote or two, and most importantly, a memory which will last forever.

I'll see you soon!

Matt was animated, informative, and absolutely excellent at keeping us going at a good pace. We saw more than we expected and enjoyed every minute.

Did this a couple of weeks ago while in London, on the recommendation of a friend who did it over the summer. Didn't disappoint at all! Matt was our guide, and he was great. Knowledgeable, funny, and got us the best viewing spots for each part of the tour! I've never done the stand in front of the gate thing, but I'll take his word for it that all you see is two people staring at each other for 30 minutes!

we saw it from start to finish, and had great views all around. if I go back, I'm definitely doing this one again, and will recommend to anyone I know going to London.

This was my second time doing this tour with Matt and I would highly recommend it to anyone wanting to experience the change of the guard! He knows exactly where to go and how to position to get the best possible views of the ceremony, and gives you interesting facts and stories along the way. Super knowledgeable tour guide, really nice guy. Always a really fun time!! Highly highly recommend!!
