Profile updated 21/01/20
I think of myself as a City of York specialist as I was born and brought up here and have had experience of guiding street walks and York Minster tours since 2011. I also offer 'highlight' tours and 'themed' tours in other Yorkshire towns and I like to guide on coaches throughout our beautiful Yorkshire countryside. It has been a joy to rediscover the special magic of York and Yorkshire after some time working away as a History/Politics teacher and travelling widely in this country and abroad. I love to welcome visitors and share my knowledge and enthusiasm.
