Introduction:

Welcome I'm Liz and I would love to develop a tailor made tour for you and your party.

I live in the beautiful medieval city of Canterbury. Here I'm a fully qualified Canterbury Cathedral guide. I would be delighted to develop a bespoke tour for you which can be geared to your particular interests. This could include the city of Canterbury, its surrounding areas, perhaps taking in local heritage sites such as one of the castles or gardens.

As a South East guide we can explore further afield. I particularly like telling the stories of characters associated with the past, not just the famous but also everyday folk who have made their mark.

Since I have lived in the South East of England for most of my life I know its nooks and crannies well, its villages, minor roads, good places to stop off for refreshments such as country inns or tea rooms.

This area can be enjoyed in many different ways, walking tours, taxi tours, by meeting you at a train station..the opportunities are many and varied.

I'm also a London guide I enjoy bringing to life the famous and less famous sites, the little gems waiting to be discovered. This area is a real treasure trove waiting for you to explore. A measure of fun would also be an essential wherever you would like me to take you; whether it's the fabulous wealth of London architecture or a beautiful medieval castle in the country.
