Born and brought up in London I have a passion for sharing the history of the City of London, with informed and fun walks through the well-known and lesser known sights, streets, alleyways and aspects of this great City of ours.
I love finding out new facts and stories by wandering around the City streets, and want to share the fascinating tales about both famous and infamous people and events that lurk behind the buildings and hidden alleyways of the City with the groups that I guide, in an informative but also entertaining way. I enjoy getting people to look up above the shop-fronts and doorways, to discover the amazing sculptures and other features hidden in plain sight.
