I have lived in London for all my adult life; working as a teacher and an actor. 

I have a passion for sharing the stories which weave through the history of the City of London.  My walks are packed with true tales of the famous, the infamous and the extraordinary citizens of this great city.

Guided Tours

Let me guide you along the banks of the Thames or through the hidden alleys and courtyards of the City.  Among the walks I offer are:

  • The Lord Mayors of London
  • The Story of the City
  • Time and Tide: the north bank of the Thames
  • The City's hidden alleys
  • How London burnt down and how it was rebuilt

Walks can also be arranged around a theme of your choice.
