Introduction:

This is your holiday; let's have FUN! I'll show you London from an historic, current and just plain entertaining perspective - aspects you might miss as a visitor or even as a UK resident.

I have lived in central London since 1991, working as a travel writer.

I have an unusual advantage. I grew up in America (just like Meghan!) but knew when I first visited London as a teenager that this was my home. I still view London with the enthusiasm of a newcomer but I have the added knowledge and wisdom of a longtime resident. My dual British/American nationality and world-wide travel experience helps too; I see London within the context of the wider world.

I specialise in bespoke walking tours, arranging a day tailored to your wishes. I've written a walking guide for families (Chronicle Books) that caters to mixed-age groups. I raised two children in central London so I know how to make the city come alive for children and teens. I'll create a day that will be as fun for grandparents as it will be for youngsters. Let's go!
