Excellent course. Knowlegeable, efficient, approachable tutor. The downside is that you are walking around in quite a large group.

Tutor Biographies
Paul Sinclair

Paul Sinclair has always had an interest in history and has been a London guide since 2014. He qualified at Westminster University and the course focused on Clerkenwell and Islington. Since then however, he has led tours all over London. At Build he leads walks in the City of London from September until April and in the ‘villages’ in the spring and summer. A student commented to him this week that he always seem so enthusiastic even though he may have done a walk a number times. He thinks that’s because it is probably the best job in the world, he's out and about, he meets so many interesting people at Build both staff and students, people seem to enjoy what he does and he gets a chance to share the history of this great city. Every area has so many surprises and it is music to his ears when students say to me “I know this part of London so well but I never knew that”.

Please note: We reserve the right to change our tutors from those advertised. This happens rarely, but if it does, we are unable to refund fees due to this. Our tutors may have different teaching styles; however we guarantee a consistent quality of teaching in all our courses.
