Hello everyone. My name is Nicholas. I am a Blue Badge Guide for South Central England. I guide from Windsor to Oxford and from Portsmouth to Stonehenge. I am a writer and I love ancient history. I can cater a tour to your needs and i specialise in ancient history particularly around Stonehenge, Windsor and Oxford where I have spent much of my life.

No matter what your tastes I can customise a tour for you, and your guests. I work for many travel organisations from Kuoni to Evan Evans.

Special Interests:


From Stonehenge to Avebury, from the Rollright Stone circle to the Ashmolean Museum in Oxford, I have ancient England flowing through my veins. I love going off the beaten track, visiting ancient Hillforts and taking my metal detector out onto the fields (with permission of course) We will enter burial mounds, visit Roman Ruins and see England from a totally different perspective.


This is Quintessntial England. The paintings that jogged an old memory. A view of the Sunset from a wheat field or an early start to watch the sun rise over Stonehenge. It is all about the memory, the photo and the smell that only comes from the open countryside. From country lanes to Pubs with the best grub in Britain. There is something for everyone in Southern England.

Castles & Palaces

Royal Windsor has its own charm . The Thames meanders its way past the ancient hillfort home to our Monarchs for a thousand years. Alternatively head for the ruined Castle of Corfe or the Stately home of Longleat or Belnheim. Experience ancient England as it once was. I pride myself in knowing the secret spots without tourists, the off the beaten track routes to the lesser known spots in and around these locations.

Churches & Cathedrals

From the Cotswolds and their parish churches, scarred by centuries of history to the grandest gothic Cathedrals of the land, there are echoes of the middle ages still linger within their walls. There is always a spot for reflection, the sound of a latin choir or even a visit to ancient burial sites that date from the Saxon times and before. The day is yours and we can customise it around your preferences.
