Let me introduce London and Britain to you! You will find me keen to show you contemporary life, alongside all that is traditional or unique. I lived and worked in London and then joined tour companies in Dorset and Hampshire, in the South of England, before qualifying as a London Blue Badge guide, and now I divide my time between London and the New Forest.

With me as your guide for your day tour from London, you can:

Tour London with someone who started working life in the famous Square Mile of the business City of London; who worked in Parliament’s chambers and the corridors of those Whitehall ministries; a long-term resident who knows what’s hidden down back streets…
Enjoy the “dreaming spires” of Oxford, the ancient University where I graduated…
Visit typical English market towns, like Salisbury, where I am an accredited volunteer in-house guide at the beautiful Cathedral…
Explore our unspoilt countryside and unmissable World Heritage Sites like Stonehenge and the city of Bath, both of them favourite places near my childhood home...

As a professional London Blue Badge guide, I hold the internationally-recognised top UK tourist guiding qualification. We can discuss your arrangements in English, French, German or Spanish, and I have the approval of the Institute of Tourist Guiding to guide you in English or French.

When you tour with me, you benefit from my membership of the Institute of Tourist Guiding, the Guild of Registered Tourist Guides and the Driver Guides Association, all of which have strict codes of professional standards and conduct.
