Guided Tours

Come stroll the City with me on special walks of film locations, churches, the world of journalism, life in the Livery or, if you are new in town, how about an introduction to the City or an insight into the life of a resident.  Or, if you want something bespoke -that would be delightful.


I'm happy to talk to any group (U3A, Women's Institute, local history societies etc) who would like to know more about the subjects above or even about life as a City Guide.
