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
It was three of us on a very demanding four-day tour. We could not have been more pleased with the service provided by Dawn. She quickly picked up our interest and tailored the tour specifically to us, even changing as we went along. For those interested in history and archeology, Dawn is both informative and very up-to-date on new findings. We could not rate her professionalism and kindness to us more highly.
