I love discovering the  layers of history and contemporary developments in the City. A Museum professional, I worked at the V&A Museum, at Hampstead Museum and London Transport Museum. I am employed as a walks tutor for the City Lit and I have guided for over 20 years at the National Trust Modernist Property, 2 Willow Road. I specialise in walks in Hampstead and in North London; guide for the tourist company, City Wonders; lead training tours to international students and  guide on the Hidden London programme for London Transport Museum.  I also give tours at the British Museum, National Gallery and V&A.  I have specialised in equality, access and diversity and can tailor tours to suit clients' requirements.
