Peter Berthoud is a class act. Catch him if you can. Also, he's very tall and not easily lost in a crowd.

I am now so ho in the know. It was great, really enjoyable, really informative, really friendly. Peter took us to every street in Soho and entertained us with stories about the areas many landmarks - both celebrated and obscure. Splendid day out.

First off... this is not a guide taken from a script and given to some "youf" to deliver, this a guide lead by a man who has a passion for the area, it's heritage/past and it's future. Peter is engaging from the start, friendly, putting you at ease,I arrived slightly late due to transport issues not a problem at all... More

Our family took a 4-hour walking tour the first day we arrived in London with Peter. Peter is very knowledgeable about London and UK history. He was able to deliver the right amount of information to us, not too much and not to boring. Peter is a very engaging person who will make you feel as if you have known... More

We (family of four with two teen boys) traveled to London for ten days over Christmas 2016. In planning for our trip, I came across Peter's name on Wendy Perrin's website. I was very interested in his Christmas Day walk, but one of my sons has autism, and as such, I tend to have some added considerations when making travel... More

We participated on Peter's Deserted London tour on Christmas Day and the whole experience was memorable. This tour involved walking around London (very) early in the morning on Christmas day, from the London Eye, through Westminister, Trafalgar Square, Bond Street, Soho, Covent Garden and more. Peter's knowledge and enthusiasm for London is unsurpassed and Peter is full of fascinating and... More

We booked Peter for a private 3-hour tour on the first day of a last-minute 5-day trip to London in December of 2016. Throughout, Peter was knowledgeable, kind, thoughtful and accommodating. We enjoyed it so much we booked him again for another 3-hour tour only 2 days later. That's probably the highest praise you can get from us -- and... More

I found Peter on Tripadvisor and together, we created a custom tailored walking tour of Central London, of all the things that I wanted to see in the city. Peter showed it all to me. I have so many memories to take with me for the rest of my life. I couldn't have found a different guide to take me... More

Staying in Trafalgar Square / Embankment

Neighbourhood Profile
Trafalgar Square / Embankment
With its iconic Nelson’s Column, majestic oversized lions and brightly-lit fountains, Trafalgar Square is not just considered the heart of this bustling London hub, but the very core of the city itself. Beyond this esteemed gathering place are more famous icons, as well as a disproportionate numbers of the city’s most popular cultural attractions including the National Gallery and many West End theaters. Along the way to these major sites are quiet lanes and antiquated pubs to discover, as well as riverside vistas to enjoy on the embankment. With a calendar full of celebratory events, any time of year is a fine time to visit.
