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!
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!
We begin at the wonderful St Paul's Cathedral. This is where Prince Charles married Lady Diana Spencer. It is the church Winston Churchill was so desperate to save during the Blitz, a beacon of hope if you will. As we then cross the Thames, fans of Harry Potter will remember the Millennium Bridge from The Half Blood Prince, and those of you keen on modern art can do no better than the Tate Modern.
Of course Shakespeare left his mark on this wonderful city, and walking along the river past the lovingly remade Globe Theatre you can almost sense the rowdy atmosphere of Elizabethan times. Nearby are the wonderfully evocative remains of the great Winchester Palace. Fortunately the Clink next door is now a museum rather than a notorious prison!
Crossing the famous London Bridge, we then pass the great docks of Victorian times, the WW2 warship HMS Belfast, and end up with perhaps the best view in London, looking across the river Thames towards the ancient Tower of London, site of executions, famous prisoners, ravens and beefeaters. And spanning the river towards the Tower is the most iconic bridge in the world, Tower Bridge.
Quite simply unmissable!

The best, most informative and friendly tour I have ever been on. Much better going with Matt, giving each and every person more of a wholesome feeling. Would definitely recommend them to any person wishing to visit London. Matt was a great guide and gave us an abundant amount of information that we all cherished considerably. Sam - Australia.

This was one of the best tours I have ever been on. My friend and I came from the US to spend the weekend in London. We were not let down at all, and even had the best time! Matt was our guide and he was so knowledgeable, and answered a ton of questions from the group. He got us right up front of all the action, and made sure no one got lost in the crowd. Our group was mixed, including some small children, and Matt made everyone feel important, was super friendly, and made sure everyone was included. I HIGHLY recommend this tour, and Matt as a guide, he knows his stuff and you won't be disappointed!
