Liverpool City Region / Merseyside
An enthusiastic guide with a passion for the Liverpool City Region. Do come and see what a great mix of culture, history and leisure it has to offer, I'd love to share it with you.
My background is in Museums and Galleries, working for various cultural institutions in Liverpool such as the Walker Art Gallery, Museum of Liverpool and Liverpool Biennial.
I live in the city centre and enjoy being in the heart of city life.
I am particularly interested in Liverpool Waterfront and City Centre, Our two Cathedrals, Museums and Galleries, The Beatles, Art and Public Art, City Walking Tours, Hope Street area, Port Sunlight, Regeneration, and Historic buildings.
I can offer guided Coach tours, walking tours and site visits. I am happy to arrange and research specific tours and trips to your requests. Please don't hesitate to give me a call to discuss your requirements
Upon becoming a Mum I dreamed up Buggy Tours for new parents and lead short, accessible tours for parents and carers with babies in thier buggies and strollers who join for the ride.

|Art/Paintings & Sculpture||
Home to Liverpool Biennial, Britian's only art Biennial the city comes alive with wonderful public art and contemporary exhibitions every two years. The next Biennial will begin in July 2020. Liverpool Biennial are also behind the commissioning of some of England's most unique permanent works of public art such as Antony Gormley's "Another Place" in Crosby, and Jaume Plensa's "Dream" in St Helens. I would be delighted to show these to you and explain how they came to be.
The region also has a host of fantastic free Galleries and Museums such as the Walker Art Gallery, where I worked on the John Moores Painting Prize in 2010 and 2012, Tate Liverpool where I was an Information Assistant from 2008-2014 and Lady Lever Art Gallery, a real gem in Port Sunlight village whose Pre-Raphaelite collection is extraordinary
|Churches & Cathedrals||
Liverpool is home to two fantastic cathedrals that cannot be missed and are well worth exploring with a guided tour which can easily be combined with Hope Street, winner of 'The Great Street Award' in the 2013 Urbanism Awards
|Food & Drink||
There are many excellent eateries to enjoy and you can savour 'Scouse', a local stew, locally grown asparagus, fabulous Liverpool Gin and locally brewed ales and of course Fish and Chips. We also have some thriving street food markets.
Liverpool itself is a compact city, perfect for exploring on foot. I enjoy leading walking tours of the iconic Albert Dock and waterfront, part of the UNESCO inscribed world heritage site. Another favourite is a walking tour of Hope Street and Ropewalks in Liverpool's Georgian Quarter. Liverpool City Region is around 60% rural so if treading the sidewalk is not your thing we can also explore the green parks, rural Wirral Peninsula and picturesque hometown of Lewis Carroll, the village of Daresbury.
Liverpool has become a premier shopping destination since the opening of 'Liverpool One', home to large department stores such as Debenhams and John Lewis and also popular brands such as Nike, Apple, Cath Kidston, Harvey Nicholls and Hollister
|History & Prehistory||
Discover Liverpool's rich history dating back to a small fishing village founded in 1207 through its ascent to 2nd city of the British Empire and its journey to the modern cosmopolitan city it is today. Let me help you explore the architecture, the wealth, the heroes, horrors, sights and sounds and what makes this city tick
