For those interested in an enthralling side of
London's history ...or wishing to trace family roots
...or simply wanting an entertaining few hours

Join me, Stephen Burstin, on a wonderful journey to discover the fascinating history and rich heritage of London's Jewish community. With a choice of several conducted tours we shall stroll along the alleyways, backstreets and main thoroughfares of some of London's most interesting areas. (All private tours are also available as part walking/part driving - please enquire)

I conduct tours throughout the year with regular Public tours from just £10 (see Public tour dates on Dates, Times & Contact Me page) and reasonably-priced Private tours any day of the week for individuals and groups (early evenings too).  My tours range from popular Spitalfields and Aldgate in the Old Jewish Quarter to amazing Hampton Court Palace and Windsor Castle tours.  Visitors to London, as well as locals, also delight in London’s Famous Attractions ..with a touch of Jewish flavour - it’s really two tours in one, visiting iconic sites and hearing their fascinating stories plus truly incredible Jewish links and amazing anecdotes too!   (Click below on My Jewish Tours and on Hampton Court Palace/Windsor Castle for all the highlights)

On all my tours I recount enthralling tales about people and places, tales that are heartbreaking one moment and heartwarming the next. I will introduce you to some colourful characters from the past and point out numerous sites of great interest …and many of them are little known sites! My tours are entertaining as well as informative and as one client comments on my Testimonials page: "You don't have to be Jewish to enjoy Stephen's tours".

As a specialist guide of Jewish London with over 25 years experience conducting tours, I will give you an insider's view of Jewish London (past and present) that is not found in any guide book for I delight in sharing my knowledge and enthusiasm, a legacy from my parents who gave me a unique insight into the amazing story of Jewish life in London where I was born.
