Why Gavin with a "G"? 

When I started my guiding career, I realised pretty early on that my guests would mishear my name and at the end of the tour would say "Thanks Kevin"! 

 

So I introduced himself as Gavin with a "G"! And it worked. All my TripAdvisor reviews referred to me as, Gavin with a "G"

Hence the name...

Performing in The Little Matchstick Girl

I trained as an actor at The Academy of Live and Recorded Arts in London and started my career as a actor. Whilst performing around Europe I was introduced to the master puppet-maker and puppeteer, Christian Ferauge of Théâtre de Toone, in Belgium (One of the oldest marionette theatres in Europe). This led me to embark on an apprenticeship in puppet-making and performing, which resulted in forming my own puppet company back in London. I created new work, collaborating with writers, dancers & choreographers, including Jonathan Watkins at the Royal Ballet. My worked toured extensively around the UK and Europe and was supported by the Arts Council England.

Working as a resident artist I also created puppet-making workshops for children and young adults from all different parts of the country. On top of this, I created workshops for adults as well as being a tutor of Advanced Theatre Practice at The Central School of Speech and Drama, London.

 

I was also nominated for an Arts Foundation award.

The skills I acquired as a performer/puppet-maker, I now brings to my tours and with my skills and experience I am able to create experiences that are enjoyable for people of all ages. I'm a guide that always looks for new and innovative ways to present London's history, which is engaging, informative and fun!

My touring repertoire covers the whole of Central London and includes many different aspects of London's rich history past, present and future. From Royal London, to the city's criminals and ghosts. From street art, to the great European artists at the National Gallery. From the rock-and-roll legends of Soho, to the the Ancient Egyptian world at the British Museum... London is my oyster.

If exploring the city on two wheels is more your thing then why not take a cycling tour which gives you the opportunity of seeing London from a very different perspective, giving you a real sense of the scale and diversity of London's landscape, people and culture.
