Tour Guide


I qualified as a City of London Guide in 1988 and conducted my own walking tours around the financial heart of the capital. From 2000 to 2002 I worked for the Original Tour. During this period I studied for the Blue Badge which I obtained in 2003. Since then I have conducted panoramic tours around London and to Oxford, Bath, Stonehenge, Stratford and other destinations within a day's journey of London.
