Profile updated 11/07/19
Linda qualified as a London Blue Badge guide in 2019, but has been guiding in London for the last 5-years, with independent qualifications for the City of Westminster, City of London and St Paul’s Cathedral.
Having travelled much of the world, Linda has never found anywhere quite like London, where she has lived all her life.
Linda goes out of her way to make each tour special, interesting and memorable, so that everyone goes away better informed, inspired, happy and smiling.
She specialises in walking tours, which can be the main sights, such as Buckingham Palace, the Palace of Westminster, St Paul’s Cathedral, the Tower of London and Westminster Abbey, or areas ‘off the beaten track’ such as the streets of Mayfair, Soho, Covent Garden and Southwark, where there are plenty of interesting and topical tales, many of intrigue, gossip and scandal involving the famous and infamous!
Offering great flexibility, she can create tours that include areas of special interest, such as the theatre, the Great Fire of London, Romans and City Churches, and also further afield, such as the University town of Oxford, Windsor, with its magnificent castle, Canterbury, Stonehenge and, of course, Salisbury, with its famous clock and tower!
Alternatively, if you prefer life indoors, Linda offers tours in such places as the National Portrait Gallery, the National Gallery and the British Museum.
With a background in finance and banking, working with both business and personal customers, Linda has excelled at team building and motivation. She has also worked in industry, managing everything from people and logistics to mechanical processes, so knows what it feels like to be responsible for everything!
So, a ‘Jack of all trades’ and a master of many!
