*** 2013 Tourist Guide of the year ***
If you want a light introduction to London or an in depth discovery tour, or even something inbetween then I can help. I will open up the City for you - its architecture, traditions, gossip, and mysteries.
Born and bred in London, I read History at university and love bringing this to life for you with tours in places like Westminster Abbey and the Tower of London. You will see the Tudors in an entirely new light.
If you prefer your culture a little more artistic, join me in the National Gallery or British Museum. I will reveal the secrets of art and artefacts.
As an experienced walking tour guide - let me show you the hidden alleyways of the old City and the modern London. We may even meet a ghost or two!

|History and politics|
London is a wonderfully vibrant place- with over 200 languages spoken, its possible to get good food for all over the globe within the boundaries of London. I won't just tell you what is here now, I will help you to understand how we arrived at where we are, in terms of politics, architecture, economics and historical references. Not by lecture, but by unravelling the sights and sounds of London.
From Roman remains, right up to Post Modern and Hi Tech to the 21st Century. Contact me to discuss your interests.
|Castles & Palaces||
Walk in the footsteps of Royalty , as we wander round the great castle of Britain. Hampton Court, where two worlds collide- the Tudor and Stuarts. Windsor castle-the Queens favourite home, or her other pad- Buckingham Palace. Take a trip down river to Greenwich for another royal Palace, and observatory.
|Churches & Cathedrals||
Westminster Abbey -the 'Nations Church' - marvel at the architecture, walk past the resting places of the Kings of England, stand amidst the Knights of the Order of the Bath and all their finery.
I offer guided highlight tours in the National Gallery and Tate Britain for art lovers - or those who want to get to grips with art.
|History & Prehistory||
Having read history at university, I now love to simplify our history to make it accessible for everyone, I can also ramp it up to bring out the intrigue and detail for those who want more.
A special one for fans of the C.J Samson novels- the wonderful detective Shardlake. I lead 'Shardlake's City' walk- which will really bring the books to life for you, even have you in tears where Chantry draws his last breath!
The British Museum is home to some of the great world exhibits, let me introduce you to these then, show you the wonders of the British collections.
