Tours & Events

I’m an accredited City of Westminster Tourist Guide and my tours and events are aimed at the general public, although private tours can be designed upon request.

I pride myself on creating and delivering accessible and entertaining experiences that educate and inspire; I have created large scale public engagements for The Royal Parks and National Archives.

Testimonials

‘The hour and a half went very quickly – Sheldon is a knowledgeable, enthusiastic and entertaining guide and it was a pleasure to accompany him around the cemetery.’ David Bingham, The London Dead 

‘The life-stories were well chosen, a good mix of sad, funny and plain weird. It was a fine example of public engagement.’ @WorldOfWatters

‘We just did the Tower Hamlets Cemetery Park tour and found it extremely interesting. Sheldon was an excellent guide and provided many facts about the cemetery and the people buried there.’ Brian M, Tripadvisor

‘The tour is so well researched and intriguing – Sheldon give gravitas to every story, talking about every woman and every man with honesty and respect. The Cemetery Club tours are a public service!’ – @DrCarpineti

‘Sheldon was able to tell us interesting life stories of many of the notable people buried there and despite it being such a large group, kept us all enthralled. A very good tour that I would highly recommend.’ @LeighFStanford

“I have always loved being told stories, and discovering stories to share with others – and Sheldon is an excellent storyteller. As we followed Sheldon through the woodland, skipping between decades, it felt like we were travelling through time.” @RBel2
