I have a particular interest in Roman and Medieval history, having studied the topics extensively for my degree in history and archaeology at York University. But I'm also fascinated by the development of London as a global trading and financial centre, with cutting edge buildings buildings to match.
I began my professional life as a local radio reporter, later working as an award winning producer in the BBC's current affairs department for many years.
Story telling is very important to me and I aim on my walks to highlight the fascinating history of the City, in an entertaining and informative way.
As a former journalist - I do like historical gossip!

King Richard lll London tour.
A new film 'The Lost King' has renewed interest about King Richard lll - one of England's most controversial monarchs - who died in battle in 1485.
Find out on this linear walking tour: how Richard lll took the throne from his nephews, known as 'The Princes In The Tower' who disappeared and were widely believed to have been murdered. The jury is still out on Richard lll's reputation today. Learn on the walk how the dead monarch's character was systematically damaged by fake news. Most famously by playwright William Shakespeare and his portrayal of the king as a ruthless multiple murderer.
Judge Richard lll for yourself: by hearing stories of his life, where he lived in the City, made his grab for power, and the causes he cared about during his short reign.
Take a guided ramble through the City and across the river into Bankside, to discover more about England's iconic playwright, William Shakespeare. The Bard never wrote his autobiography - but there are plenty of locations that throw light on his life and times. From sites of famous theatres like The Globe or Blackfriars to areas like Bishopsgate where he once lodged.
