Introduction:

I passed my Blue Badge exams in 2005, receiving an award for the best guide in the gallery exams.
Since then, I have led numerous tours around London and the UK, both on coach and foot. Highlights of my career have included giving a talk on BBC radio 4 about the execution site of Tyburn and writing a book on the British monarchy.
My special areas of interest include the 2012 Olympic Games, British history, English literature, Jack the Ripper, ghost walks and Ancient Egypt. I can also read a few Ancient Egyptian hieroglyphs and am trying to conquer the rest!
