Introduction:

Just 38 minutes by train from London, 20 minutes drive from Canterbury and half an hour from Dover, I am a local Guide living in the beautiful Kentish countryside.

I specialise in Tours and Talks, to give you a local flavour, such as Smuggling in Rye, Hopping in Kent,
Geoffrey Chaucer's Canterbury Tales and the iconic 'White Cliffs of Dover', sung about by Dame Vera Lynn.

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.

I am now working towards becoming a qualified Genealogist and hope to pursue this interest in the near future.
