After careers first as an officer in the Royal Air Force and then an air stewardess Ann joined a major UK Tour Operator in an operational role handling incoming American groups. Experienced in all aspects of tour planning she trained as a Blue Badge Tourist Guide for the Heart of England and more recently for London.
She holds a BA (Hons) in Tourist Guiding giving Ann the unique detailed knowledge of all aspects of tourist guiding and has 25 years practical experience. She is a food and wine expert holding the Wines and Spirits Education Trust Diploma DipWSET. She also has a passion for sport and theatre.
Ann enjoys looking after visitors of all ages especially family groups and her goal is to give every visitor a unique and memorable experience, so no two tours will be the same. As a London guide Ann is delighted to show you around the famous sites of Westminster Abbey and the Tower of London or the lesser known areas of the City and East End. Further afield she is familiar with the Cotswolds, Shakespeare’s Stratford upon Avon and Windsor and Eton.

Cities and towns: Birmingham, Solihull, Coventry, Warwick, Kenilworth, Wolverhampton, Oxford, Gloucester, Cheltenham, Hereford, Stoke-on-Trent and the Potteries, Leicester, Rugby

After years of organising tours Ann is aware that guides can talk too much. Sometimes our best memories of a holiday are silently absorbing sights, smells and background sounds of a special place. Ann would love to take you to her special places and share her knowledge of the past, present and future events with you.
