South East England
I was born in the lovely Lake District of northern England, and after graduating with an Honours Degree in History & Politics, I did a lot of travelling, including 5 years living in the USA. I have been a tour manager for over 30 years, working extensively in areas of the UK, and also in the Republic of Ireland. For 20 of those years I was also a Magistrate in the English legal system.
I gained my Blue Badge in South east England in the late 1990s, and later added the York Minster endorsement.
My aim in guiding is to try to bring my country alive to people, especially when they come from overseas. I cover everything from the grand sights to the price of milk, ( although I am the first to admit I am hopeless on the natural world.) My approach is casual on the surface, but ruthlessly organised beneath, and I give a service which shows that learning CAN be painless and even fun !
Please contact me with any proposals you may have.
