General city tour, Great Fire of London, Livery companies, Markets, River Thames, Romans.


I now have a thirst for things historical and love inspiring other people about places and people in London. There is just so much to see and understand when walking around. Perhaps discovering what the Romans did in the City of London? The clues that show Islington was once a village surrounded by countryside? Or seeing the industrial remains in Wapping and Limehouse upon which the City depended for its connections with the world.  

With family connections in Australia, I make connections between London and people who went there for whatever reason.  Here's just one example

I have trained as a guide in the City of London, City of Westminster and also Clerkenwell and Islington.
