Introduction:

I have studied in the Strand, lived in Soho and Bloomsbury and worked in the City. I have been a newspaper journalist all my working life and enjoy telling people about the London I love.
I will unpack the best bits the capital can offer � from its treasure chest of history, culture, architecture and quirkiness. I will be pleased to guide you around the major attractions like Westminster Abbey and the Tower of London. And I will also be happy to give you a guided panoramic coach tour or a walk that takes you into hidden corners and squares with unexpected delights.
Whether you have a large party of school children or students who wish to visit a museum or a small corporate group of adults who want to spend a morning at an art gallery, I will make sure you have an interesting, exciting and fun day out.
I will also devise specialist tours tailored to your requirements. I have an MA in architectural history gained at the Courtauld Institute and love to show visitors London�s finest ancient buildings and the stunning new architecture rising in the city.
And if you would like a change of tempo and some time out from the capital, I am also qualified to guide you around Stonehenge, Bath, Oxford, Windsor, Stratford and Canterbury.
