A native Londoner with careers in media, advertising and theatrical worlds, I aim to bring the 'real' city to life for visitors. If you want history - ancient or modern; current - culture or events; or just highlights of this magnificent City - I shall tailor our time together to your desires and will aim to make your visit unique and memorable.

As a frequent traveller myself, I appreciate the importance of a home-grown, local tourist guide.

You say where - I'll take you there!

'Thank you for bringing the Tower of London to life with your knowledge, humour and humanity - we both felt very lucky indeed to spend the time with you.'

‘Thank you for your wonderful guiding. Your knowledge of London and your pride in your home town are apparent. This made for two wonderful days of getting acquainted with you, the sights, and the history of London.'

'Your tour of Westminster Abbey was one of the highlights of our pilgrimage.'

'You are amazing - I will definitely send you more clients!'
