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 - all taken at a relaxed and gentle pace - we shall stroll along the alleyways, backstreets and main thoroughfares of some of London's most interesting areas ...and I also offer tours that combine short strolls and travel in a comfortable minivan. (Please watch the three minute film clip below about my tours)

I conduct tours throughout the year with Public tours from only £10 (see 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 Spitalfields & Aldgate in the Old Jewish Quarter to amazing Hampton Court Palace (of Wolf Hall fame!) and Windsor Castle.

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 for their fascinating stories plus lots of incredible Jewish connections. (For highlights of all my tours, please click below on My Jewish Tours and Hampton Court Palace/Windsor Castle)

On all my conducted tours I recount heartwarming and heartbreaking tales about people and places.  I will introduce you to colourful characters from the past and point out many sites of great interest …and some are little known sites!  My tours are informative and entertaining and as one former client says on my Testimonials page: "You really 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 (past and present) that is not found in any guide book. I delight in sharing my knowledge and enthusiasm for this lovely city, a legacy from my parents who gave me a unique insight into the amazing story of Jewish life in London where I was born.
