I’m a former business consultant who has decided that ‘living in London’ is a far, far better job. I am passionate about the City – its history, buildings and people. Both my maternal and paternal families are from London and I have lived in Walthamstow (London borough of culture in 2019) for almost a quarter of a century.
My intention is to start running some guided tours based in the City later this year. Details will appear on this website. I’m currently on the City of London ‘Green Badge’ Tourist Guide course 2020/21, a course accredited by the Institute of Tourist Guiding. In the meantime, I’m using this blog to share my experiences and thoughts – sometimes serious, more often with some humour (I hope!) – as I continue to live the life of a Londoner. Read more about my blog philosophy in a post here.
My posts are all my own work – I include bibliographies to show what research I’ve done – and posted because I find the subject interesting. I do not accept any payment, ever, in return for writing a post.
Do you have some general observations about my blog, or would you like me to post about a specific subject related to London? Perhaps you want to offer some praise, or some constructive criticism. Drop me a line using the form below, but please keep all comments clean and polite. Life is too short to vent your spleen at complete strangers.
