From Gravel to Glory

VIRTUAL TOUR  

The London Bridge area is often seen as a place that commuters, traders, businessmen simply pass through on their way to the City or London's West End

However it has a history of human activity going back around 10,000Join me to journey through time in one of the most historic parts of the capital. 

Glorious Greenwich  

 

Fancy getting out of Central London for a bit? 

Let me show you to an often neglected, yet thoroughly beautiful part of town.

East End Now and Then
 
 

As London grows, many of the authentic parts of its East End are being swallowed up by the development of the City.

Come and feel the beating heart of East London

 

Bespoke Tours

If you would prefer to have me all to yourself then I do offer private, bespoke tours. 

One of the advantages of a private tour is that we can change things to suit you.

I can also take you inside and guide you through some of London's best known locations, such as The Tower of London, St Pauls Cathedral and Westminster Abbey, Kensington Palace and The Churchill War Rooms.

Don't fancy London? No problemwe could always head to Windsor Castle, Stonehenge, Bath, Oxford, Canterbury, Stratford-upon-Avon, Warwick Castle or Leeds Castle.

Lets make your visit one to remember.

Please contact me for prices.

Charlotte Thurlow

Hi there, I'm Charlotte, the founder of Miss Magpie Tours.

I love my city and would describe myself as a proper Londoner, born and raised here but with mixed heritage.

I have been a tour guide for 11 years and am also a qualified London Blue Badge Tourist Guide.

I specialise in tours of Greenwich but as a Blue Badge I am also able to guide you inside places like The Tower of London, Westminster Abbey and St Pauls Cathedral - Blue Badge Guides are the ONLY external guides that are allowed to do this.

I'm a native Londoner and my family have lived in this city for 500+ years. Having said that I would say i'm fairly well travelled and have an abiding interest in history and culture. I specialise in art tours, music tours and tours of the east end of London.
