It was a real pleasure…

… to be able to plan a walk sharing London with Fabrice and his lovely family from Switzerland. Also, good to know that they enjoyed it so much.

“Just a word to say thank you for the fantastic tour you’ve prepared for us! We all had so much pleasure to walk with you and listen to the stories,going through small streets … all was great!”

Looking forward to our next meet-up.

Had a great morning…

… taking a delightful group of secondary school youngsters around the City. Make even better by receiving the following email from their teachers.
Thanks for being a great guide. The boys really enjoyed it, particularly going in the less obvious nooks and crannies. As I said (and you know), I think the ‘people and events’ angle is a good one for kids as they can link to the history they learn in school.”

Summer in the City

17th July 2017


Blisteringly hot day for my historically themed walk as part of Open Garden Squares weekend.  A lovely group of people.  Grateful for the shade in the City’s green spaces.

The congregations of flowers in Christ Church Newgate Street at its best – with one small exception!

IMG_20170617_123103179We ended up on the roof of Eversheds Sutherland’s building in Wood Street where there is an extraordinary garden: deep beds heaving with veg … beehives … heather… and a flypast by the Red Arrows accompanied by a peel from St Paul’s!  Which, obviously, I arranged specially.


Or it might just have something to do with the Queen’s official birthday.
