Welcome! I live in the beautiful Cotswolds and I love sharing its stories and sights. I’m a qualified Blue Badge guide for the area and I’ve written a book about some of the quirky, fun things I’ve found here. I'm also a Green Badge city guide in Oxford.
I really love giving tours because there's so much to see and enjoy, and so many fantastic stories to share.
I’m always tweaking my tours to take in new things I discover.
I used to write children's books - just search on Amazon and you'll see my 60 publications. I'm also an ex-teacher so I’ve spent my life finding ways to present stories and facts in a stimulating and accessible way.
I offer tours of the Cotswolds taking in classic sites plus rarely seen delights that many visitors miss.
On this website you'll find details for all my walking tours, which you can book on a date and time to suit your needs. My walking tours include:
I offer a number of themed talks relating to the Cotswolds. These include:
Cotswold cornucopia: sites and surprises
Tragic Titanic: unexpected connections
Go West! The A40: a ride across England and Wales
Christmas and the Cotswolds: customs and traditions
