Andy

Andy is the Keanu Reeves of London Walks. Aka the thinking woman’s crumpet. Aka ‘the Queen Mum’s favourite.’ In the words of the Evening Standard, ‘a class act.’ A strikingly talented young actor – and budding historian – he received rave reviews for his one-man show, George VI in Heaven.

He’s good company: laid back, friendly, fun, at ease with himself and his walkers and his handsome, historic old patch. Add to the mix the fact that he’s completely in command of his material and you’ve got a great walk fronted by a very gifted young guide.
