Introduction:

British born and bred with a Polish heritage, I have lived and worked in London now for over 40 years. I have a lighthearted fun personality but love history and story telling, I tell stories in a way my groups really enjoy. I have been taking groups around Britain and Ireland now for 22 years and as a London Blue Badge Guide for the last 10 years. I pride myself on providing an interesting and entertaining tour for my guests. On my tours I will always show the famous places but also the hidden treasures as well. I feel I can take you on a walk or tour of London and bring these places alive for you, tell you not just the history but inform you about modern day London and its very vibrant scene wether its food, history, nightlife, theatre and lots more. The areas of London I really love are Westminster, St James's, Mayfair, Soho, Southwark and Borough Market, Notting Hill _my area, and Portobello Rd, City of London and St Pauls. The whole Southbank walk from 9 Elms ( New US embassy ) to Tower Bridge. My favourite places to take visitors are Westminster Abbey, Westminster Cathedral , St Pauls's, Tower, National Gallery and Portrait Gallery, Churchill War Rooms, British Museum, Walking tours of London, Portobello Rd, Soho!!!!!!! I know a lot of film locations be they the Crown, Harry Potter, Bridget Jones, Notting Hill, Kings Speech and many more.
I also love guiding outside London like Stonehenge, Salisbury, Bath, Oxford , Cotswolds and Stratford upon Avon,
Winchester.
