Central Southern 2017
I am qualified to guide in the counties of Dorset, Wiltshire, Hampshire, Berkshire and West Sussex. This includes key tourist destinations such as Salisbury, Stonehenge, Blenheim Palace, Winchester, Thomas Hardy country and The Jurassic Coast. Having trained as a teacher, I am used to communicating information in an interesting and engaging way. Having also worked as a Conservation Officer for a local wildlife charity, I can add wildlife interest to any tour or walk. Being a member of two twinning societies, I have many years experience in taking groups around the region and introducing them to the history and environment of southern England.
