I have lived and worked in the East End of London all my life, and was born within the sound of Bow Bells - a true "cockney". I recently retired as Assistant Headteacher of a large comprehensive school in East London, and qualified as a City of London Guide in 2015. I am able to provide a bespoke or general tour of the City, which will hopefully entertain and interest all.

Guided Tours

I am particularly interested in those unknown stories and anecdotes about the city. The Inns and pubs also take my fancy, as do the beautiful and varied open spaces, which combine the modern development of the city with its varied and fascinating past.
