Profile updated 15/02/19
I am an artist and guide with an insider's knowledge of Kensington Palace and the British Museum where I still work. History and The Royal Family are my special interests (inescapable at Kensington and Windsor – and everywhere I guide) while storytelling and art are my guiding passions.
I can take you on a walking tour or arrange a comfortable ride with a chauffeur: from most popular sites, to hidden views and exclusive experience – bespoke tours. Westminster Abbey, for instance, is a quintessence of the nation - condensed history, a time machine bringing together ancient monks with the glamour of royal weddings and regal pomp. What I always remind you of when guiding is that in London the modern is interwoven with the ancient.
Since childhood I have loved storytelling and myth, so as a guide I find stories in all sorts of artefacts, from Van Gogh’s Sunflowers to Mayan masks; from the Raphael Cartoons to Rameses II: I love to make our great collections accessible and fun. And I know my collections from the inside, having even enjoyed spooky sleepovers in the Egyptian Galleries; while as regards the National Gallery - I would want to spend all my life there and it wouldn't be enough.
It's not only London! I can take you to Stonehenge, Salisbury, Bath, Oxford, Stratford-upon-Avon,
Windsor and Eton.
I aim to share a warmth of response to a town and country I love, and I am here for you, to offer an enjoyable experience with an educational twist!
