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 shall introduce 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.

  • Thursday 11 April 10 am:  KEW.   A new walk round this delightful part of west London which has been home to royalty and is now famous for its botanic gardens.
  • Tuesday 16 April 10 am:  PORTOBELLO ROAD.  An easy stroll along one of the most famous street markets in the world and also some surrounding roads.
  • Wednesday 24 April 10am:  EMBANKMENT GARDENS.  This chain of gardens beside the Thames in Westminster was created when Sir Joseph Bazalgette built London's sewage system and the flower beds are a joy in the spring time.
  • Saturday 27 April 10 am:  RICHMOND ON THAMES.  Tucked away from the busy shopping street are almshouses and lovely Georgian buildings.  At two and a half hours a slighty longer than usual walk but worth it to enjoy the magnificent view of the river from Richmond Hill.
  • Sunday 28 April 4 pm:  THE GROUNDS OF HOLLAND PARK.   An easy Sunday stroll, the remains of the Jacobean house and outbuildings lie within well tended woodland and gardens.

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.
