Introduction:

I am passionate about London's history and a very proud Londoner. Currently specialising in the London 2012 Olympic games, I was the first guide to do tours of the Olympic Park site as I was brought up and still live in the area. I am equally happy to conduct coach or walking tours such as London's pubs or Jack the Ripper or talks on any of these subjects and many others. I also specialise in London's sites and historical eras especially Sir Winston Churchill and WWII plus any of the outer london sites we are qualified for such as Hamton Court, Windsor, Oxford, Stonehenge, Bath and Stratford upon Avon among others. My guiding style is relaxed but informative and I look forward to hearing from you by phone, text or email.
