Biography

The City of London is the oldest and probably the most fascinating part of London, but with so many stories and secrets to reveal, it is best discovered with a qualified guide.   

Join me to learn about architecture, from modern to medieval, to hear about the famous and ancient livery companies, trace the devastation of the Great Fire of 1666, learn how trade shaped the City and made England great...just so much to see and talk about.
