Heart of England
I have a history background and a love of discovery about the stories of the men and women who have made their mark on our landscape and buildings. I can tailor any tours to your interests and have training in describer tours for visually impaired.

A very English obsession and a fascinating insight into the culture and fashions of our 'outdoor rooms'.
|Castles & Palaces||
From the romantic ruins of Kenilworth to the opulence of Blenheim.
|Art/Paintings & Sculpture||
Whether it's Gallery tours or public art; Pre-Raphaelites or Anglo-Saxon craftsmanship.
|Churches & Cathedrals||
There are a wealth of hidden treasures in our churches which tell the story of over a thousand years of lifestyle and belief. The region is rich in cathedrals and abbey churches, from Gothic Gloucester to contemporary Coventry.
