Introduction:

Having spent most of my life in Oxford it is a joy to be part of the accredited guiding community. I know all the facts and figures but offer visitors a ‘tailored’ experience. My particular interests might be the history, literature and architecture of Oxford, but Harry Potter, Alice in Wonderland, pubs and punting feature too.

I work with private groups, families, and businesses offering 1 hour to all day tours. I can advise about accommodation and eating in Oxford.

It’s wonderful work to tour the streets of Oxford and share its’ stories, old and new, with interested and interesting visitors from overseas and the UK. I inform, entertain and try to make sure you want to come back

I am currently serving as the President of the Oxford Guild of Tour Guides.
