I have always loved art, architecture, history and, of course, living in London, and I want to show the London that I love to those who share my passions.

Guiding is my second career. After a history degree from Oxford, I qualified as a solicitor (attorney) and spent 37 years at a leading City law firm. I loved using my expertise to help clients solve their problems, and I am now using a different expertise to help clients understand and appreciate the wonderful things that London has to offer.

I specialise in small groups, on walking tours or visits to some of London's great sites or museums, in particular:
• Tower of London
• Westminster Abbey
• Kensington Palace
• National Gallery
• St Paul's Cathedral
• Victoria and Albert Museum
• City of London Walk
• British Museum Highlights

I also do specialised themed tours or walks, for example:
• First World War
• Legal London walk
• City Churches walk
• William Pitt's London
• The Bible in the British Museum
• The Bloomsbury Group

I can arrange bespoke tours to a particular place or area in London, or covering a particular theme. Just let me know what interests you.

I can also take you out of London to:
• Bath
• Canterbury
• The Cotswolds
• Oxford
• Salisbury
• Stonehenge
• Stratford upon Avon
• Windsor

(but note that I am not a driver guide so we will need to arrange transport in addition)
