Introduction:

Hello! If you would like a tour with a pleasant, professional and enthusiastic guide, then please read on…
I have lived and worked in London for over 30 years. I can show you places and traditions that have been at the heart of London for centuries, take fascinating routes around today’s busy streets and surprise you with secret off-the-beaten-track locations…and we can have a fun as well as informative time.
I offer guided tours of the best that London has to offer: From the pomp of Changing of the Guard at Buckingham Palace to ghoulish tales at the Tower of London; Royal London including the magnificent Westminster Abbey, our palaces and parks; beginners’ guided tours of the art collections of the National Gallery and the Tate Modern; weave a way through the web of archaeological treasures at the British Museum
If like me you interested in what goes into your tummy, then we can enjoy a food-themed tour that reflects the cultural diversity of London. And because I have additional accreditations to guide walks in the City of Westminster and City of London I am well placed to take you on walks (themed or general) in many parts of London including: Mayfair, Covent Garden, Soho, Marylebone, St John’s Wood, City of London, Hampstead & Kenwood, Paddington, Along the River Thames, South Bank, Borough & Bermondsey, St James’s and Clerkenwell.
Whatever your age or interests there is so much to see and do. I’d love to help you make the most of your visit in a comfortable and enjoyable way. Tell me what you like and I will provide a tour just for you. It will be my pleasure!
About me
I was born in the Black Country (West Midlands) and studied at Cardiff University in Wales before coming to London. Married to a Londoner, I have two children, both at University.
My professional background is in finance. I am a qualified accountant and worked for the British Council, Britain’s leading international cultural relations organization for over 20 years. I have travelled extensively, lived in India, Italy and France and have worked closely with people from cultures across the world.
