I have always loved art, architecture, history and, of course, living in London, and I want to show the London that I love to those who share my passions. And I believe strongly that there is no point paying for a tour if you do not learn new and interesting things, and there is no point paying for a tour if it is not entertaining. You are on holiday and my job - and my pleasure - is to help you enjoy yourself!
Guiding is my second career. After a history degree from Oxford, I qualified as a solicitor (attorney) and spent 37 years at a leading City law firm. I loved using my expertise to help clients solve their problems, and I am now using a different expertise to help clients understand and appreciate the wonderful things that London has to offer.
In these strange COVID days I represented the Institute of Tourist Guiding in getting access for tourist guides to the "We're Good to Go" certification from Visit Britain, which confirms compliance with best practice in handling guests in a safe manner. I was one of the first guides to receive this accreditation.
