Introduction:

I am a friendly professional Blue Badge Guide and I am happy to meet you and/or your family in London and take you to Kent, Sussex or Surrey to explore the secrets of the South East of England.

I live in the beautiful Kentish countryside - home to some of the best local produce and known as the 'Garden of England'.

My particular speciality is the city of Canterbury and it's wonderful Cathedral, Abbey and Anglo-Saxon church - today a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Book me to create your own 'Canterbury Tale' and let me guide you through the local streets and countryside to hear stories from famous people and fabulous sights.

We can stop off to sample some of our local food and drink, taking the time for you to get that perfect picture of your trip as well.

Contact me to discuss your requirements in more depth - I look forward to sharing my fabulous local history and countryside with you.
