I am a History teacher in London of over 30 years’ experience. I graduated from Queen Mary [University London] where I first had the opportunity to take walking tours of the East End with City Walks. A large section of my degree concerned the History of London. I have previously worked as a self-employed tour guide for Britmovietours and was instrumental in the development and delivery of their Jack the Ripper tour 2009-11. More recently I have been working on behalf of Original London Walks guiding their Maritime riverside walk and their Sunday Boat tour[in conjunction with the Brunel Museum]. I also work as a volunteer on behalf of Wilton’s Music Hall [both as a tour guide and usher]. In 2014 I spent the summer at Fort Phil Kearny, Wyoming USA, primarily as a tour guide to the Fetterman Battlefield and undertook desk and museum duties at the Fort itself. I am really excited by what I can share with you.

About the tour

Wapping, a franchise of executions and more pirates than the Caribbean. Docklands became derelict lands, a tiger on the loose and a gruesome burial. Wapping is where Tobacco was the king of sailor town. So much to explore from the artist Turner to Captain Kidd.

Includes:

Wapping High Street

Dead Man Stairs

Tobacco Dock

St George's in the East

Cable Street

Wilton's Music Hall

Factoid- The Thames River Police are England’s oldest Police Force. Established in 1798 it was a river policeman that was called to the infamous 1811 Ratcliffe Highway murders

What's the price?

A guruwalk is a pay-what-you want walking tour, which means, it's completely free to book and join the group, but the 'guru' expects to be rewarded once the tour ends. Some people give 5, some people give 50, you choose the price.

Reservations in advance are mandatory because if the 'guru' doesn't see any bookings one day, she will not show up at the meeting point. Or if she has too many 'walkers' that day, won't allow you to join without the reservation. Booking is completely free, fast and easy. Book your guruwalk now!
