Itinerary

We follow a circular route through Westminster, Britain's political heart, to see sites connected with the political career of one of the twentieth-century's great statesmen. We see sculptures reflecting aspects of this career, as well as buildings where Churchill worked or which fell under his charge.

As we go we'll reflect on the complexity of a politician whose political career spanned roughly sixty-four years. We'll consider his achievements - some less obvious than others. And we'll see the reality behind the public image, doing a little myth-busting along the way!

I was born in Bethnal Green, in the East End of London, in 1964 - and I'm still here! A lifetime in London keeps me in tune with the city's rhythms, and this gives authenticity to my work.

I qualified as a City of London guide in 2013, but also I guide a lot in the East End, where I teach tour guiding through my local authority.

Through my virtual tours my aim is to evoke the experience of being on London's streets. The setting of the tour is as important as the topic, and we get to know the character of the area as we go.

My specialist areas are literary London, espionage and intelligence, crime and the law, business and trade, and philanthropy. Also I'm a medievalist by training, and am developing a collection of pre-modern London tours.
