About Gavin Webb

Hello, I am Gavin, a London Blue Badge Tour Guide who was named Luxury Travel Guide's London Tour Guide of the Year in 2018 and 2019.

I love sharing my passion and knowledge of London with my clients on regular walking tours and museum and gallery visits, but due to COVID 19 restrictions I have developed a series of virtual tours which can be viewed over Zoom. Using a mix of images (photos, maps, paintings), Google Streetview, Apple Flyovers and video as well as my live commentary, you can discover London from the comfort of your own home.

These virtual London tours last about 55 minutes with plenty of time afterwards for questions which can be done through the "chat" function in Zoom. I have my own Zoom account which allows up to 99 participants. I can also take care of the booking and payment for the talk through TicketTailor if required.

The talks include the Development of London's Neighbourhoods and their distinctive architecture; A Whitehall Wander, London's Customs and Ceremonies, Tales from the Tower of London, the Building and Design of St Paul's Cathedral, the Street Art of Shoreditch and Shakespeare's London.

You can find more about me from my web-site which includes a link to my TripAdvisor reviews, some of which are reviews of my talks.
