Literary tours

If you are keen to follow up well-known literary figures and movie characters, your tour can track down Sherlock Holmes or magic up Harry Potter in London. In Bath, you can dive into the world of Jane Austen, the 18th century authoress of Pride and Prejudice, Persuasion, and many other acute social observations of her times. In Oxford, Harry Potter locations abound, as well as places that inspired Lewis Carroll, the creator of Alice in Wonderland.

Garden tours

These are a beautiful way to see England as it wants to be seen. Even in and around London, the Royal Palace of Hampton Court and the botanical gardens at Kew and Chelsea can satisfy your interest in the history of the landscape, or movements in design and taste, or horticulture and plant introductions, or even adaptation to climate change.

The Olympic Games

Ask me to take you on a preview of the Olympic Park and other venues where events will be held in 2012! I have been specially trained to guide you and give you insights into the greatest sporting event in the world. Ideal for sports enthusiasts and people who actually hope to visit London again in 2012. I also welcome enquiries from teams of whatever country requiring familiarisation with the Olympic and Paralympic venues, and support at the training bases available in the rest of Britain.

It's your choice...

I have provided a variety of other tours with a particular theme, such as business and finance, government and politics, military tradition and history, and family tree research. Tell me your own passions and I'll advise on a tour to fit them!
