Philip Scott

I moved to London from Lancashire, where I grew up, in 1981. I love living in London and sharing my passion for and knowledge of this wonderful city’s rich history, culture and diversity.

Qualified City of Westminster Tour Guide Badge

After teaching politics, history and other humanities subjects in east London for 33 years; I transferred the skills I acquired as a teacher to become a qualified tour guide in 2019 (City of Westminster qualification).

I really enjoy guiding people around London, not only the main sights but also parts of central London that are off the main thoroughfares. My walks are delivered in an informative, friendly and accessible style. As well as the more obvious information, I like to share little-known and slightly quirky nuggets.
