London, Heart of England
Passionate about people and places, the stories of past and present, I'm intrigued by the way we use the environments we have created and live in. According to Carolyn from Texas: 'Felicity was the best guide we've ever had'! Direct, perceptive and lively in passing on information, my enthusiasm and enjoyment of guiding ensures that my listeners stay interested and want to hear more.
After my education at two English universities I lived in London for over 25 years and worked in the British Houses of Parliament before training to be a guide. I am now proud to be guiding in both the beautiful Heart of England and in Nottingham as well as in London.

You'll never see a place in quite the same way as you do on a walking tour. Hidden alleyways, unexpected gardens and a ruined church or two... Or maybe a guided walk with a difference in the English countryside? Gentle strolls along established paths, to see an England most visitors never see.
Pride and Prejudice, Persuasion, Sense and Sensibility, Emma - I am a huge Jane Austen fan and delight in guiding other Austen fans around London and the elegant city of Bath.
The countryside around London is a fascinating place for a rural ramble. And what better way to see the English countryside than a guide-led, gentle walk through some of it? Maybe combine with a visit to a stately home, and a pub lunch but definitely see England as most tourists never see it.

Experienced in working with conference and incentive groups, taking guided visits or guided walks around town. If you have a conference or social venue with a spectacular view, how about a 'guiding the view' session to add interest?
