I've lived in London all my life and love the city. I'm a City of Westminster and Clerkenwell & Islington Tour Guide and lead mostly food and drink themed walks in places such as St James's and Mayfair and hidden historic pub tours in Belgravia and Marylebone. Other walks include areas such as Clerkenwell, St Luke's, Walthamstow and Chingford. All my walks include both historical and current information (ie unusual places for afternoon tea) and you will receive a handout listing these details.

Great experience. Everywhere we turned there was something new. Wear comfortable shoes, bring extra layers of clothing (the nature of the event means standing around a bit), and an open mind - open to the London you may not know about.

My husband and I enjoyed Joanna's St. James's - Coffee Houses and Clubs walk. She was an excellent guide, and we learned a lot about an area that we visit relatively frequently. Joanna is very knowledgeable and went out of her way to provide details and answer questions, even sending a post-tour email to follow up on a question to... More

This year was the 2nd year I've done this tour & loved it. Having grown up a Londoner (well, Croydonian) I feel I know London pretty well but this tour showed me lots of hidden treasures. There are prettier lights than Oxford & Regent Streets & really interesting little bars & restaurants. As well as so many historical facts on... More

A generous 2 hour tour in cold weather nevertheless kept the group engaged. Our guide was very knowledgeable and presented his information with theatrical flair. He readily answered our questions - this tour is highly recommended. The walk itself is not physically challenging to those with ordinary fitness levels.

Thanks Jan for your good review. Was your guide my colleague Ray Coggin? If not I wonder if you have in fact put your review in the wrong place as Ray is the only male guide I have recently worked with. More

Today, 5th November, I attended my first walk led by Joanna which I found fascinating! I was very familiar with the territory we covered, having lived in the area all my life, and yet learnt many interesting facts about former properties and their uses, notable people who had lived in the community etc etc. Joanna is most professional and informative...

We contacted Joanna and her team some weeks ago to request a customised walking tour of Westminster for 60 primary children. She was quick to reply, and showed just how knowledgeable she is about many different areas of the capital. In addition, she was able to add in subject specific facts and location stops to link with the children's recent... More
