My job gives me the privilege of being out and about every day in London.

Whether leading a walk, visiting a museum or gallery, or just enjoying the city's bustle or its quiet spaces, there's always something new to see, something interesting going on.

In my blog, I seek to reflect the ever-changing patterns of life in the greatest City on Earth!

Special Visits sidebar

On these pages I feature a number of special tours and visits, generally of a half-day or day’s duration. These tours and visits are suitable for groups, societies and schools or colleges, and will often involve travelling by coach.

Feel London’s history

Some complement my talks and lectures. For example, in conjunction with the Spitalfields silk weavers lecture, I can arrange for groups to visit Dennis Severs’ house, once a Master Weaver’s house, and today offering an extraordinary experience which draws us into the lives of an imaginary family of weavers who seem to be still in the house, just out of sight. We’ll also visit the magnificent Nicholas Hawksmoor Christ Church for coffee and a short talk to introduce the extraordinary story of Spitalfields.

‘Discovering London’, the East End and Beyond, Royal Palaces on the Thames: all offer different perspectives on London and its history.

England’s gardens’ glory

The Garden Tours take us beyond London, to visit some of the glories of rural England.

Tours tailored to your needs

This is just a selection of the tours possible. Please feel free to contact me with any ideas or requirements.
