Across London, you will find an array of walking tours on offer. Many are informative, but in our experience, they are rarely personalised. Many tour companies will bundle together large groups, thereby providing an experience that lacks engagement. Instead of discovering the magic of London, guests get only the bustle of London — chasing a tour leader’s flag or umbrella as they battle through crowds.
We ensure your time exploring London is tailored to your needs at John England tours. You and your travelling companions’ interests are placed at the heart of your London guided tour.
Whether you want your tour to focus on the British royal family, London’s medieval past, or the literary Londons of Shakespeare and Dickens, we can cater to your needs. (On that note, book lovers among you may wish to take a look at our dedicated tour of Charles Dickens’ Rochester.)
Putting our guests first is the John England Tours’ way. Instead of the big city feeling overwhelming and overcrowded, you will travel at your own speed alongside an expert local guide. In addition to being a fully insured private driver-guide, John has public liability insurance to deliver London walking tours.
If you have any questions concerning these London guided tours, please get in touch — we’d love to hear from you.
John is a fully insured private driver-guide. He’s also the proud owner of John England Tours.
As a local professional tour guide, John lives in South East England and is able to give guests easy access to historical places that are absolutely teeming with British history. Check out his Private Tours of South East England.
The county of Kent is where medieval and Tudor kings used to hunt and where several queens made their home, of which Leeds Castle and Hever Castle are two exquisite examples. In more modern times, Sir Winston Churchill and his family used to live at Chartwell House which overlooks part of The Weald of Kent (the spot where Anne Boleyn caught King Henry VIII’s eye).
John shares local insights and stories on his private tours of England’s south east, showing his guests some hidden and picturesque villages in Kent, Sussex, and Surrey which are inaccessible to large buses and coaches. His intimate knowledge of the region means he knows the beautiful hidden places, those rare gems, that many London-based tour operators, drivers, and chauffeurs simply aren’t aware of.
John is one of the hosts at Arival, (a leading global professional community for the tours and activities sector); trains the Withlocals global tour guiding community, (private day / multi-day tours); and a group expert, (guided tours), in the All Things Tudor and the UK and London Travel Planning Facebook communities.
