Introduction:

As a qualified Blue Badge guide for Central Southern England I enjoy showing this beautiful and fascinating region to visitors and locals. The area includes Hampshire (Winchester, New Forest), West Sussex (Fishbourne Palace, Chichester), Wiltshire (Salisbury, Stonehenge), Dorset, the Isle of Wight, Oxford, Blenheim Palace and Windsor Castle.
This is the area that inspired Thomas Hardy's Wessex and where Jane Austen lived and wrote. It covers a pre-historic landscape, is bursting with castles and stately homes and has several World Heritage sites too.
With a degree in education specialising in British history I love to share fascinating stories about the long ago events and colourful characters who have impacted on the development of Britain!
As an experienced teacher I am adaptable and can engage groups with my enthusiasm.
I am a Bristolian born and bred and enjoy leading visits around my home city, looking at diverse gems such as Wesley’s New Room, Brunel’s SS Great Britain and street art.
There is a wealth of treasures to explore and I look forward to sharing them with you soon.
