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 21 February, 10 am:  THE ARTISTS OF HOLLAND PARK.   An easy stroll where famous artists, film directors and pop stars have lived ... and some still do.
  • Tuesday 5 March, 10am:  BISHOP'S PARK  The gardens of the former summer home to the Bishop of London are a joy in the spring time.  The park was the venue for the King's Dinner for the Poor in 1902 and attended by royalty as well as hundreds of local residents.
  • Saturday 9 March, 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 12 March, 10am:  BEDFORD PARK.   Built in the 1880s it is regarded as the first garden suburb and attracted artists, writers and actors who enjoyed living in what was then a rural location. 

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.
