Hi I'm Laurence and I work as a tour guide in Italy, Spain, France and my home city of London. I've run Varsity Travel for 20 years and love walking around historic cities telling stories and anecdotes of the characters and historic events of that city. I love standing in a place where you can almost feel the history and bringing it to life for my guests. London is so fascinating and I would love the opportunity of sharing my knowledge with you on a walking tour of Westminster. I'm a foodie, keen traveller and love escaping to the mountains to follow my passion of paragliding when time allows. Hope to meet you soon!

About the Tour

Westminster is the epicentre of British Royal and political history and there are hidden remnants of the past to discover if you know where to look. Your tour guide Laurence will bring history to life with tales of Kings, Queens, tyrants, scoundrels, mistresses, love, war and intrigue. Combining factual history with detailed stories and anecdotes, you will learn about the history of Westminster Palace and Abbey and the disappeared Palace of Whitehall. Which Queen had rotten black teeth and may have been a man? Which philandering King had deep bedroom-brown eyes that could not be resisted? Which King had ulcerated legs prone to infection? Who was hung and beheaded three years after his death? Who was the Queen's favourite known as 'Water'? How did Guy Fawkes escape a long painful death? Join us for a fascinating guided walk around historic Westminster to find out!

Meeting point: Open in Google Maps

How to find me: Outside exit 4 of Westminster Underground station. I will have a Union Jack flag on a tour guide stick.
