Professional Blue Badge Tour Guide
I'm passionate about the history of my much-storied isle. I love castles, knights and anything to do with battles and warfare. But English history isn't limited to a narrow topic like castles; the landscape is littered with Stone Circles, Manor Houses, Palaces and Landscaped Gardens. London is centuries of history all piled on top of each other and twisted about - you need a guide to unpick the strands that pique your interest.
Before becoming a guide, I was a Theatre Manager for years in London’s West End. I am also an Actor and besides guiding I also work as a Historic Interpreter at some of our chief historical attractions playing King Henry VIII and Edward I (Longshanks) among others.
Our history is written loud in our grand buildings and cities, yet you will always find peaceful little villages just waiting to tell you their own fascinating stories. I've been guiding for several years now, and I know no one, even the biggest history nerd, wants an unrelenting history lesson all day.
Book a tour with me and I'll show you modern Britain, as well as what's buried underneath.
Loved the stories of all the nooks and crannies of Windsor Castle
What an experience!
I went to Windsor Castle with a friend and chose to have Will as our tour guide (having never been before). He showed us around all the best and most interesting parts of the castle. He pointed out nooks and crannies with great stories attached to them and he even knew where the bullet that shot Nelson was. Will was incredibly knowledgable, engaging and was able to answer all our mad questions. He found out early on in the tour we love the Knights of the garter and so gave us more detail when we came to sections of the castle dedicated to their stories. A day I will never forget and will 💯% use Will again next time we delve into history. Well done and a massive thank you!
