I welcome you to London and all it has to offer. London is a wonderful and exciting mix of the 'old' meets the 'new'. The City of London in particular has some of the most diverse architecture knocking about side by side, putting us in a time warp of HG Wells proportions.

I aim to give lively, fun and informative tours that bring London to life for you. From criminal London's past to the more lyrical world of art galleries and museums.

I was trained in the theatre, so I have a love of storytelling. I also worked for the Royal Collection guiding at the Royal Mews and Clarence House, so have an interest in and knowledge of royal history from centuries past to current times.

I have done a lot of work particularly at the British Museum, guiding in the special exhibitions for corporate events. I have also previously been a Parliament guide - a most fascinating site which stays relevant and topical in our constantly changing political world.

Why not try my Mayfair Walk taking you back to the fops and dandies of the early 19th century, followed by a tour of the National Gallery. Please enquire about other walking tours directly.

My walking tours include:
The Old & New City of London
Legal London
Criminal London
Covent Garden Theatreland
Literary Chelsea
The City of Westminster
Literary Bloomsbury
Southwark & Shakespeare
Jack The Ripper

VIRTUAL TOURS: Mayfair and Literary & Artistic Chelsea
