Personal Interests:

Innovation & regeneration, cinema & cycling.
Walking and cycling tours, in order to see, hear and feel the city afresh!

Special Interests:

Castles & Palaces

Buildings have stories to tell. Blood-curdling, eye-popping stories. Alex will be your interpreter.

London Areas in Depth

Royal Greenwich; Ceremony and the City; Saucy Southwark; Shakespeare and shopping; Westminster.

Churches & Cathedrals

Many of the most inspiring, astonishingly beautiful places and spaces were built on faith: mighty abbeys, tiny vibrant churches and shells that are the shadows of communities lost.

Education

Alex's experiences as creative arts educator, secondary school teacher and museums' informal learning officer are gifts for you to draw upon.

Ghosts, Murders & Mysteries

Alex is a story teller. The ghosts of Arbella Stuart and the 'She-Wolf of France' will be conjured in your mind's eye. Harry Potter and Sherlock Holmes will dash down streets ahead of you. The bitter cries of outcast London will echo in your ears.
