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 personality and really enjoy meeting new people. I have been taking groups around Britain and Ireland now for 21 years and a London Blue Badge Guide for 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 am a great story teller and love the period of the War of the Rose's and the Tudor's and Stuart's. I also specialise in London during World War 2. Both my parents were involved in the war. Foodie and drink tours of different areas of London from Borough Market, Soho and Notting Hill.
