Introduction:

Just 38 minutes by train from London, 20 minutes drive from Canterbury and half an hour from Dover, I live in the beautiful Kentish countryside, close to the Ashford International Station and a million miles away from the City.

I specialise in Private Tours either on foot or by car or minibus and as a former Librarian, I bring to life the stories and film locations of many famous authors who have lived or spent time in Kent, Surrey or Sussex.

From Dickens to Chaucer - let me create your own 'Canterbury Tale' or wander with me through the local streets or countryside to hear stories from history of famous people.

We can stop off to sample the local food and take the time for you to get that perfect picture of your trip as well.

Please do contact me to discuss your requirements in more depth - I look forward to sharing my beautiful history and countryside with you.
