Unique bardic tours for the curious and adventurous!
Have your very own Bard guide you around the historic and the literary, the beautiful and the bizarre, regaling you with colourful tales and maybe the odd verse!
A professional storyteller and experienced guide (Stonehenge Tours; Ghost Walks of Bath; Gothic Image Tours;) I am also a lecturer in Creative Writing for the University of Winchester, and I am the author of several books on folk tales, folk lore and mythology. I write monthly guided walks for popular British magazines. I love researching and writing about the stories of this amazing country I live in - and have had several books published on the subject. I am also a keen walker, and like nothing better than going on a literary stroll or bardic ramble, sharing a favourite location with visitors, connecting to a place and the writer/s associated with it. I can bring alive a landmark or landscape through the voices of the writers who have lived there; as well as convey a sense of the many layers of history, archaeology and myth that gather around a site. I look forward to meeting you - and hearing your story too!
