London is a potpourri of different cultures - more than a third of the city's population is foreign-born. Charley fell in love with London as a teenager and always enjoyed showing her city to others. Her first job out of University was guiding on the open-top buses. And since then, there has been no turning back. After 6 years of guiding across major tour companies (EF, BBC, and secret food tours), she decided to kickstart her own venture.
On her tours, you might just find yourself bumping into a surprise. "I had a lookalike of Prince William on my bus! People thought it was the real one," she laughs. The surprises don't stop there. "I introduce people to landlords of my favourite pubs and prioritize family-owned local business over the popular chain businesses," Charley quips.
For Charley, drinking in the Beefeater's secret pub within the Tower of London features as one of her best experiences in the city. She's wearing multiple hats, working part-time selling ham and cheese at Borough Market (London's oldest and best food market), while studying to be a psychotherapist. Whoever said you can't have it all?
