Why Choose A Bespoke London Tour?

Private Guide

Hosted by The London Storyteller himself, your bespoke experience will be hosted by our founder, Thomas Barclay Matchett.Tom is a storyteller through words, images and music. His passion for curioristy, creativity and discovery has inspired him to develop what has been described as an 'encyclopedic knowledge' of the people, places and personalities that have shaped London's history, culture, architecture and associated stories.Tom seeks to inspire his guests from all backgrounds across many interests and through engaging storytelling.

Dining & Attractions

We're happy to make informal recommendations - a popular request from our clients - for great places to eat and drink, especially when we can share from our authentic local 'in the know' experience.For special requests and perhaps more discerning interests, we can also prepare a selection of carefully researched recommendations and make reservations in advance as an optional extra with our bespoke london tour service.


It isn't the flexibility to tailor what you want to discover, as well as when and where you want to do it that makes our bespoke london tours so sought after. More than a decade of living in London has given us plenty of experience with the wonderfully changeable British weather.We're mindful of this with our tours and so are weather flexible in our planning. Our experience helps us to adapt and we have found too that last minute alternatives can sometimes be a perfect surprise.

Luxury Transport

Our bespoke London tours include options by arrangement for helping you get into and around London and beyond; whether this is booking a pick up by taxi cab, reserving train tickets, a private coach, luxury vehicle or even a helicopter ride. The beauty of going bespoke is that we can scale the service to what you need and what you want.We're happy to help with the smaller details in making our guest's experiences enjoyable, such as arranging Public Transport passes in advance, as well as meeting and parting with our guests where is most convenient to them.
