Introduction:

Salisbury City Guide,
London Blue Badge Guide Course Director 2006 - 2010. London Training Tutor and lecturer, Director of Training the Trainers 2012.
As the mother of 4 boys, now grown up, and as a former teacher, I am very well used to being adaptable and versatile, to managing groups and being aware of the level of input required. I love showing people our fantastic wealth of sites whether it be in cities, museums or countryside and much enjoy the company of those who have come to explore London and its surrounds. I still feel excited about going into our magnificent cathedrals, palaces, museums, galleries and wild places and hope to be able to share this with my visitors. I have wide experience of teaching both adults and children and am involved in ongoing training of both student guides and those already qualified.
I have endorsements for 2012 Venues, Canterbury and Salisbury Cathedrals and York Minster as well as the Palace of Westminster and I guide regularly at Spencer House.
