CWGLA Guide Logo Richard

A qualified City of Westminster Guide, Richard has lived and worked in London all his life. He has a passion to bring to life the dramatic ebbing and flowing history of the city and to show off its great thoroughfares and squares and buildings as well as some lesser known alleyways and byways. What inspires him most is telling the stories of its great characters - and getting that magic feeling of "it happened here".

Richard worked for over twenty years in the government, is a Literature graduate and a trained and experienced actor. He is also a freelance coach and London bus guide and a volunteer steward and Trustee of the Crystal Palace Museum.
