Introduction:

I’d be delighted to be your Blue Badge Guide to London.
Please do get in touch if you’re looking for a bespoke experience of top picks like the Tower of London, the British Museum, Westminster Abbey and St Paul's Cathedral, or want to get to know less-known corners: the East End, Fleet Street and beyond, London's docks or the Royal Borough of Greenwich.
With a degree in English literature and Art history, I can also offer walks centred around your favourite author – or a personalised tour the National Gallery.
* Having worked in international and multilingual environments as well as with English language students, I’m also able to offer tours at different language levels, graded to your needs.

Sería un placer acompañarle como guía Blue Badge en Londres.
Póngase en contacto conmigo tanto si busca una experiencia personalizada de la Torre de Londres, el Museo Británico, la Abadía de Westminster o la Catedral de San Pablo como si quiere conocer los rincones menos conocidos - la diversidad del este, la historica zona portuaria o el Barrio Real de Greenwich.
Como licenciada en literatura e historia del arte, también puedo ofrecerle un paseo centrado en su autor favorito, o un recorrido personalizado por la Galería Nacional.
*Hablando del idioma: he trabajado en entornos internacionales y multilingües, así como con estudiantes de inglés y por tanto puedo ofrecer recorridos bilingües, o con un nivel de inglés adaptado a sus necesidades.
Por ejemplo, si usted viaja con alumnos de un nivel B1, podemos hacer una parte del viaje en español, pero a la vez incorporar una visita al Museo Británico realizada en un inglés que entenderán.
O si usted viaja en familia y quiere que los niños practiquen el inglés, pero a los abuelos no les hace falta, ¡consultadme!

Special Interests:

History & Prehistory

Hidden in plain sight: the women in history, wives of Kings, politicians or artists in their own right - let's explore their stories together

Art/Paintings & Sculpture

A visit to London is a great opportunity to get to know British Art - let me show you the highlights!

History & Prehistory

Fascinated by all things mediaeval, I can take you back to explore where Londoners lived worked and played from Anglo-Saxon times.

Literature

London's literary life has been rich for centuries: if you want to follow in the footsteps of our great writers, from Chaucer to Keats, Dickens to the Bloomsbury group or George Orwell, I'd be delighted to help.

Fashion

I’m also keen on shopping! I’d love to take you on a tailored-to-you trip through the heart of London’s commercial world, past and present.
