Financial Institutions, Crime and punishment, Medieval London, General city tour, Literary tours, Romans, Legal London, The Great Fire of London, The River Thames.


A lifelong Eastender, I guide principally in the City and the East End. Though a medievalist by education, I have a variety of guiding interests. My preferences are for literature, crime and philanthropy. I have experience of guiding in education, from school groups to higher education, and am keen to develop the practical applications of guiding in other contexts.
