London is my home and west London is where I have lived for most of my life.   

My walks are informal, full of interesting and unusual facts and, most of all, are to be enjoyed.   During 2019 I have introduced some new walks to my repertoire.  

I would love to share with you the fascinating history of this wonderful city, contact me for meeting venue.   A donation of £5 is suggested which goes towards supporting local charities.

  • Saturday 17 August 10 am:  WALK THE BOAT RACE.  My annual boat race walk, 4 miles and 374 yards (6.8km), from Putney to Mortlake with history of the race itself as well as places we pass on the way. 
  • Tuesday 27 August 10 am:  FULHAM.  Over time the open fields and orchards gave way to grand houses, in turn their extensive grounds were replaced by streets of terraced houses and even a womens prison.
  • Thursday 29 August 10 am:  ASKEW ROAD.   A favourite walk of mine in Hammersmith, it is amazing the history this road and surrounding area has, from the ice age to pop singers.
  • Monday 23 September 10am:  CHELSEA - NORTH OF THE KING'S ROAD.   New Walk Wander through former Hans Town to St. Luke's church and then along the north side of the King's Road. 
  • Saturday 28 September 10am:  KEW VILLAGE. Another new walk this year.  Come and discover the hidden delights of the village of Kew, the walk ends near the gardens if you wish to visit them afterwards.

I have also written some books which take you on a photographic and historical trip around west London and make a perfect gift so do contact me if you would like a signed copy, special price £20.   The six titles in the “Wild about” series cover the following areas:   Chelsea, Fulham, Hammersmith and Brook Green, Shepherd’s Bush and Askew Road, Notting Hill and North Kensington, Richmond and Kew.
