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.

  • Wednesday 29 May 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 slightly longer than usual walk but worth it to enjoy the magnificent view of the river from Richmond Hill.
  • Tuesday 4 June 10 am: PETERBOROUGH ESTATE. new walk Affectionately known as 'lion country', the Peterborough estate in Fulham takes its name from a house of that name which stood here in the time of Charles I, now delightful Victorian houses line the streets.
  • Thursday 13 June 10 am:  SHEPHERD'S BUSH.  After exploring the Green, the walk takes us to the site of the 1908 Olympics and through a hidden Japanese Garden.
  • Saturday 22 June 10 am:  ASKEW ROAD.  A local favourite which includes brickfields and laundries, follies and a listed school building with a connection to  James Bond. 
  • Friday 28 June 10 am:  CHELSEA.  This new walk passes by the river where so many famous artists lived and also along King's Road.

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.
