Introduction:

Hello - I live in Wiltshire, between Stonehenge and Salisbury Cathedral. I am a driver guide offering tours for up to 4 people across all of Southern England from Hampton Court and Windsor Castle near London to Land's End in Cornwall.

I studied Archaeology at Cambridge University before embarking on an Army career in the Grenadier Guards, reaching the rank of Colonel. The Army took me all over the world and I loved every minute, but now I am really enjoying being able to show people around England, and share with them our heritage - the beautiful countryside and our many historic places.

I have been a Blue Badge guide for 5 years, during which time I have met all sorts of interesting people from many different nations. Their enjoyment of everything which England has to offer has taught me to appreciate our unique environment all the more.
