Originally from the Charnwood Forest region of the Midlands, Richard studied Hotel management in Manchester, England and in New York, USA before embarking on a career managing hotels that has taken him across the globe.

Having retired now from the world of hotels, it’s his love of hospitality combined with a passion for history that has become the hallmark of Richard’s truly inspiring guided tours.

London has been Richard’s home now for many years and there is nothing more he likes than to take visitors and locals alike on an exciting journey through what has to be one of the most fascinating cities in the world. Equally, if exploring further afield appeals then Richard is no stranger to the easily accessible cities of Oxford, Cambridge, Windsor, Bath and Canterbury.
