Welcome to my hometown —

Make the most of your stay in London with a true insider by your side by investing in a personalized private tour: you’ll experience the very best of this fascinating world city — all at your own pace.

I am a professional Blue Badge Tourist Guide, which means not only top quality sightseeing, but you’ll also enjoy privileged access, skipping the long lines at many attractions: Maybe you’d like a sightseeing tour or an exclusive guided visit inside the Abbey or Tower. A world-class museum or a spot of shopping? Whatever you choose, you’ll see sights other visitors would normally pass by and it will be a unique event that fits your day and yours alone.

You can browse the classic collection below for inspiration — any tour can be customized to meet your needs.

About Tim Goddard

Tim Goddard, Blue Badge Guide


Friendly, knowledgeable, fun and flexible: the things I’ve heard most over the past 20 years’ experience helping visitors get more out of their stay in Britain. There is something especially pleasing about touring in your own hometown, sharing insights that only a life-long Londoner can bring. The former university lecturer in me particularly enjoys bringing Britain’s diverse history and culture to life.

Blue Badge Guides

The coveted Blue Badge is awarded to less than 30 people in London each year on successfully completing an 18-month course and passing all dozen exams, making it the UK’s highest guiding qualification with the Institute of Tourist Guiding, the industry’s standard-setting body and mark of quality recognised worldwide. Only we Blue Badge guides have privilege of guiding inside iconic sites such as The Tower and Westminster Abbey.
