I am a qualified City of London Guide, a member of the City of London Guides Lecturers Association and an Associate of the Institute of Tourist Guiding.
A lifelong Hampstead Garden Suburb resident, I started guiding at the Modernist National Trust property, 2 Willow Road on its opening day in 1996. Formerly the Curator of Hampstead Museum, Burgh House, I have been creating and delivering walks in the Hampstead area for more than 15 years.
I love discovering interesting nuggets of London history and am fascinated in how places develop and change as well as what lies beneath the ground. I am especially interested in artists and their connections with places and the stories of individual buildings.
Walks vary from 1.5 hours to 2.5 hours and can be tailored for different ages and requirements
