Biography: Hello. I qualified as a London Blue Badge Guide in 2001 and have enjoyed showing visitors the city I love ever since. I have a wide experience of guiding in all its forms - working with groups, families and individuals. We can use coaches, taxis, public transport or our feet - you decide!
I am qualified to guide in all the major must-see London sites such as Westminster Abbey, St Paul's Cathedral, Tower of London and the British Museum - but we can explore the more "hidden" London as well.
And with the Olympics coming to the city in 2012, I would be delighted to take you to the areas where you will have the best views of the venues. You will hear about the history of the games, the construction of the olympic venues, sporting anecdotes from games past - as well as seeing and learning about the massive regeneration of East London resulting from the games.
I am also qualified to guide in the great sites of Southern England that you can reach in a day from London - like Hampton Court, Windsor, Oxford, Stratford, Salisbury, Stonehenge, Bath and Canterbury.
I will tailor our tour to meet your interests and needs, making the most of all the wonderful opportunities that London and SE England offers.
I look forward to meeting you!
