Introduction:

I am qualified for the South/South East region (Hants, Isle of Wight, Oxon, Berks including Windsor Castle, Bucks, West and East Sussex, Surrey and Kent). and also for Salisbury and Stonehenge. I can offer coach or walking tours, or a combination of the two

History has always been my passion. I have a degree in Modern History (which covered everything since the fall of the Roman Empire!), and have especially developed a love of local history and of historical geography.

I enjoy the way that a site, a landscape or a city can come to life when you know its history, and try to communicate that enjoyment to others. I have children myself, and am happy to work with children, young people and families as well as adults.
