Biography

Hello! It would be my pleasure to show you places and tell you about traditions that have been at the heart of the City London for centuries.  We can take walk amidst towering 21st Century architecture, dive into medieval alleyways, break in a delightfully secluded garden, visit rooftop oases as well as enjoy the amazing variety of cultural venues available in the City for example the Museum of London, The Guildhall Art Gallery, Mithraeum, Barbican Centre

As well as the City of London I am also a City of Westminster guide and a Blue Badge Tourist Guide so I can take you on internal tours of St Paul's Cathedral and the Tower of London.  I am particularly fond of the City's markets, its cultural diversity, food and of course the River Thames.

I offer general highlights tours and tours themed to your interests for example:  Roman London, City Churches, Medieval City, World War 2, the Great Fire, Literature and Law, Livery Companies and the History of the Finance in the City.

Whatever your age or interests the City has much to offer.  I’d love to help you make the most of your visit in a comfortable and enjoyable way. Tell me what you'd like and I will be delighted to provide a tour just for you.
