After my law degree and then working in global professional services firms for thirty years as a tax adviser and learning specialist, I realised a long-held ambition qualifying as a London Blue Badge tour guide in 2020.
I delight in sharing my love and my deep knowledge of this great city with those who want to learn its history and secrets or those who simply want to be sure to make the most of what London has to offer.
Every chapter in London's history, ancient or modern, can be told through the London you see today - if you know where to look. One of the best ways to discover the city is through a walking tour; whatever your particular interests, there'll be something to amaze, inspire and entertain.
My interests are eclectic, ranging from architecture through fashion and textiles (I have a costume diploma) to food and dining, sport and urban regeneration.
I look forward to helping you discover the London you love.

|Science and invention|
|Theatre, film and literature|
Area or themed walking tours are one of the best ways of discovering London.
Great music has been performed and recorded here for centuries and still is. There is so much music in the city, from live gigs or concerts, to the places which inspired tunes and where musicians lived and worked.
Novelists, playwrights and poets, heroes, heroines and villains. London has a rich literary past and present which weaves many magical stories.
I have 20 years of experience of learning and development in professional services and am adept at crafting and delivering talks on all aspects of London past and present.
I have a special interest in the well-established wellbeing benefits of spending time with historic buildings and in green spaces and have a range of walking tours which capitalise on this.
