Meet your guide to London
I moved to London from my native Yorkshire over 30 years ago to study Geography. After graduating I spent the greater part of my working life in the brand communications business, but as my 50’s hoved into view, I fancied a complete change.
So, after two years of intensive study, I qualified as an Institute of Tourist Guiding accredited tour guide for the City of London and as a tour guide for the City of Westminster and now have the pleasure of sharing the delights of the greatest city in the world with everyone who comes on one of my guided walks.
About my guided walks
Suffice to say I’m not an academic or historian, nor an actor filling in between jobs regurgitating someone else’s pre-prepared scripts.
What I am is an enthusiast of the history of London. I research and write all my own walks and I love sharing the fascinating stories that lurk in the city’s past and how they helped shape the amazing city that London is today.
These are not street lectures; whilst you will always come away from one of my walks with a few choice nuggets of information to share with your friends, I like above all to have fun on my walks. I enjoy doing this hugely and I want you to enjoy the experience just as much.
Do I succeed? Well, I’ll leave that for others to say!
And because I have taken the time to undertake the training and pass the examinations required to earn the proper accreditation badges, you will at all times be able to see what we are talking about, hear what I have to say and be taken safely around London’s busy streets (and with due consideration for others using them).
Hope to see you soon!
