Guided Walks in London

Welcome to my site.

I’m a City of London Guide, City of Westminster Guide, National Trust Guide, Westminster Abbey Guide (Education Department), Life Member of London Historians, and former partner in a City law firm. When doing walks and talks I try to bring in knowledge, enthusiasm, and the ability to engage with an audience. For feedback, see my Reviews.

During the summer I ran a public programme of events, including three legal-themed walks/visits, and The Road Less Travelled, a walk from Moorgate to the edge of Bloomsbury using back streets as far as possible.

To the repertoire of walks, talks and organised visits, I have added the organisation of treasure hunts, including two in Covent Garden and the City, respectively.

Here is a link to my article published earlier this year by London Historians - a legal battle for Leicester Square: https://londonhistorians.wordpress.com/2017/03/09/leicester-square-restr...

Also another link, to a programme for Soho Radio called The Soho Society Hour, on which I appeared. My main contributions are at 10.20 to 15.35, and 18.25 to 28.09: https://www.mixcloud.com/sohoradio/the-soho-society-hour-06042017/

Recent work has included a "virtual walk", taking in the Whitechapel area from Shadwell to Aldgate, and a talk for London Historian's History in the Pub evening, on Emily Davies, a 19th century pioneer of the rights of young women to a University education.

As we move towards the New Year, I am delighted to have made arrangements for a walk and a talk for North London U3A during the first part of 2018.

But first I have a walk over the festive season. St James - Refuge of Tradition, is a stroll round one of London's most distinctive "villages". It is an area I know well having in the past worked there for a period of over 20 years. The walk is on Wednesday 27 December, lasting for two hours, and we start from outside Green Park Station promptly at 11am. For more information amd booking details see https://www.eventbrite.com/e/st-james-refuge-of-tradition-tickets-408349...

All best
