City of London Guide – City of London Guides Lecturer’s Association- Institute of Tourist Guiding (Green Badge) Associate member – Friends of City Churches and London Historians

I am a born and bred Londoner with a passion for history and was naturally drawn to study The Square Miles’s rich stories and share them with others. History became my passion after my father took me to the Tower of London when I was a little girl. I am an official guide for St Paul’s Cathedral and I currently volunteer as a ‘Working’ Friend at the Cathedral once a week.
