English, French, Italian
I have lived in London for over 40 years, apart from stints in Oxford, Rome & Singapore, & love helping visitors unravel its layers of history and discover the vibrancy that is present-day life in the capital. I guide in English, French and Italian, and would love to take you on personalised tours of top sites such as the Tower of London, the British Museum, Westminster Abbey, St Paul's Cathedral, Hampton Court, & Kensington Palace, as well as walking tours of Southwark, the City, Bloomsbury, Shoreditch etc, and tours of the National Gallery, Tate Britain, & many other fascinating sites. I also offer tours to top destinations outside London such as Oxford, Windsor, Stratford, Bath and Canterbury.
I specialise in walking tours of the City & Southwark, and themed tours including Ancient Egypt at the British Museum; Medieval London - Brave Knights and Powerful Queens; Music London; and Diversity & Inclusion - e.g. Women in London, Multicultural London, LGBT+ London for Allies, Jewish / Multifaith London etc.
I previously worked in International Banking, managing sales teams around the world.
