Barrister and Blue Badge Guide Emma Matthews
Even as a "born and bred" Londoner, Emma Matthews is always making new discoveries about the city she calls home and delights in sharing her knowledge with guests. Emma can offer particularly unique insight into the history of law and the Inns of Court, where she practised as a barrister. After her career in law, Emma followed her passion for art history and began operating bespoke art tours in London and beyond, before becoming a full-time guide. It’s not just Emma’s impressive accreditations that make her an excellent guide to the city of London: Emma works hard to tailor your Experience to your interests, and shares her unique knowledge in a generous, enthusiastic manner! Get a glimpse into the esoteric world of law in London on her tour of the Inns of Court and Fleet Street; join Emma on a stroll around Chelsea to understand how the typical resident of this affluent West London neighbourhood evolved from bohemian to businessman, or discover a secret historic art studio in Kensington. “I hope guests come away with an experience of what it is like to be a Londoner today, infused with a sense of history,” says Emma. Peppered with anecdotes of an extraordinary career and life in London, Emma’s Experiences are the ideal way to scratch beneath the surface in the city.

"Emma was a great guide, and knew heaps of facts about not only law, but many things. The quality of SideStory tours is great, and the guides are obviously well qualified. All round a great tour. "
