I am an experienced Private Tour Guide providing customised tours in London and South East England. As a professionally qualified Blue Badge Tourist Guide I am licensed to guide clients inside Westminster Abbey, the Tower of London, St Paul’s Cathedral and Windsor Castle, in addition to other sites such as Royal Greenwich, The British Museum and The National and other art galleries and museums.
As I mainly work with small private groups, all tours can be customised to suit you. I aim not just to take you to the headline highlights but to show you how to get around and give you ideas for exploring further in your own time.
Apart from walking – which is the best way to see many parts of London – we can take buses, the Underground ‘Tube’, river boats and black taxi cabs. For those with less energy or mobility there is a chauffeured option.
Guided Tours outside London include day trips to Windsor Castle, Canterbury, Dover Castle, Hampton Court Palace, Oxford and Cambridge Universities, Blenheim Palace, Stonehenge, Brighton and Bath.
I also specialise in private day tours outside London to gardens, castles and stately homes including Anne Boleyn’s Hever Castle, Leeds Castle, Winston Churchill’s Chartwell, Great Dixter and Sissinghurst Gardens as well as ‘Off The Beaten Track’ tours of the beautiful countryside of South East England.
Background: My background is in public relations, marketing and project management in the fine art and architecture sectors. I have spent most of my life and brought up my children in London and the South East of England.
