Introduction:

I am delighted to introduce myself: a Blue Badge Guide who used to be a corporate tax lawyer-probably a fairly rare commodity! I love my second career of guiding and get huge pleasure from sharing the delights of Central Southern England with visitors.
Going back a few years, I was lucky enough to study law at Cambridge University and then spent many years working at a leading international law firm in the City of London. Skills learnt in my earlier profession are very useful now-particularly helping people understand things that may seem quite complex. Happily, its a lot more fun explaining the ins and outs, characters and dramas that tell the story of our many fascinating historical sites than it is explaining the intricacies of tax law!
I live in the ancient English capital of Winchester and am a Winchester City Guide, giving regular walking tours of the City. I am also a Salisbury City Guide. My Blue Badge qualification covers Central Southern England-from Oxford in the North to the Isle of Wight in the South, the Jurassic Coast to the West and Chichester to the East. I am also an Accredited Windsor Guide.
Having lived in and around the area for many years, I am able to show visitors not only the "must see" sites but also the hidden gems and surprise delights. I am also a keen walker and take huge pleasure in exploring our lovely countryside.
