As a holder of the coveted Blue Badge I am privileged to guide within the Tower of London, Westminster Abbey, Canterbury Cathedral, Windsor Castle and many other historic royal palaces.
My specialities include London highlights - and for those returning to London, the hidden gems, Tudor Royalty in South East England especially the life and times of King Henry VIII from Hampton Court Palace to Hever Castle; Canterbury and its cathedral, shore excursions from Dover and the glorious gardens of England.
It's the region's social history that really excites me - how people lived in earlier times, the land and cityscapes they developed and the contrasts with today's lifestyles.
I have combined my earlier career experiences with my best loved interests to present the delights of the region in an entertaining & informative style.
A Recent Review of this guide
Dawn is an excellent personal tour guide who was extremely attentive to our preferences and time schedule. She provided in depth historical perspective that made every stop a treasure trove of fun and information. Dawn was truly a wonderful tour companion to me and my 3 sons aged 16-25years old and was ever attentive. She is very patient, has a cheery personality and a great sense of humor that truly enriched our short visit to London. I would recommend her highly without reservation!
