Keith Warner : The Londoner

Keith was born and brought up in East London and still lives in the East End in Limehouse. After school, Keith started worked as a junior Customs Officer in the West India docks, the core of which is now Canary Wharf creating one of the most dramatic business transformations witnessed in the last century.
After leaving HM Customs and Excise, Keith then spent 23 years working in the City before retiring in 2008. This gave Keith the opportunity to seriously study for the City of London Guiding Certificate after years of roaming around on his own and duly qualified in 2009. He further qualified as a City of Westminster guide in 2011 and so is now accredited to guide in both Central London locations. He worked for 2 summers as a guide on the open top buses which confirmed that showing visitors and Londoners around his city was a natural vocation for him.
Keith also speaks regularly about London to groups and societies, such as the Women’s Institute, and can provide a talk delivered with enthusiasm and knowledge on many aspects of London.
