Born and raised a Londoner, Mark has been fortunate to live also in Oxford and Dorset, as well as to work overseas in France, United States of America, Czech Republic and Russia. He has enjoyed visiting or living in several great cities but nothing compares with London - quite simply, this is the world's most fascinating city! His personal interests range from the history of the City, to Jewish history, transport and multicultural London.
Paul was one of the youngest ever Blue Badge Guides to qualify since the profession of Blue Badge Guiding began. He is a descendant of the Shaw & Hardwick family of architects who worked in London throughout the entire 19th century and his father's family worked on the Thames for over 150 years. He loves to share the history with modern day London as much as possible in all of his tours.
Peter is a London native whose biography reads like a picture postcard book of the capital. Born ‘within the sound of the Bow Bells’, he spent his formative years as a chorister at St Paul's Cathedral, was a John Carpenter scholar at the City of London School, and went on to complete two degrees at the London School of Economics. While studying for the ‘Knowledge of London’, London’s legendary taxi-driver test, he worked as a driver on the city’s iconic red Heatherwick buses. He loves sharing his unique insights and observations of his home town with visitors from around the world.
