Heart of England
I have been a Qualified guide since 2001 though I have worked in the Tourist Industry a lot longer, mostly as a Tour Manager and that has been to such far flung places as China and Canada. I have toured lots in Europe too but always love to show people around my own country and my own beloved Heart of England. I love the history, the landscapes, our traditions and folklore. Literature and film/TV locations are I suppose something I have specialised in most recently but my interests are many and varied. Gardens, Architecture, Churches, Religion in general.
In Britain we tend to take so much of our heritage for granted and it is always particularly gratifying to me when, at the end of a tour my guests tell me how they have enjoyed learning something new about their own country - or even better, it has made them want to learn more.
