Born just to the east of the City walls, London has been the backdrop to my education, working and social life. I've explored its grandeur and uncovered many of its quirks, discovering quiet, hidden squares or amazing buildings just tucked away out of sight.

I'd be very happy to show you the colourful delights of the East End - giving a personal slant on its history and culture.

If you like art galleries, museums, famous sights or not-so famous back streets and alleyways I'd be thrilled to take you there and bring them to life for you.
