Oxford is a magical city. Magnificent buildings, glimpses through doorways, the majesty of colleges spanning 800 years. Let me be your guide to the history of the city and its university, exploring it through the eyes of an astonishing cast of characters who have wandered the very paths and pavements before you.


Along the way, we’ll also frequent the haunts of beloved fictional characters, from Lyra Belacqua to Harry Potter, from Inspector Morse to Lewis and Endeavour. And then there are those – like Alice Liddell, inspiration for Alice in Wonderland – who transcend the real to inhabit the richer realms of fiction.


As an accredited member of the Oxford Guild of Guides (and possessor of their much coveted Green Badge), I will be happy to tailor your tour to your wishes as far as possible.


I also do two specialist tours that have been approved by the Oxford Guild of Guides:


Phillip Pullman - Lyra's Oxford – this includes all the books that make up His Dark Materials and The Book of Dust. We can't travel to Svalbard and Bolvanger, but we can glimpse the characters as they move around the city and its buildings.


The story of religion in Oxford – from martyrdom to Methodism

I am an experienced and qualified Green Badge Tour Guide and I really enjoy showing people round glorious Oxford and sharing its colourful history and traditions with visitors of all ages.

I especially love Inspectors Morse, Lewis and of course Endeavour tours where we will discover the locations of murder, mystery and intrigue. Or join me for a tour to see the locations of films with Oxford as backdrop such as Harry Potter, or hear about famous writers such as Lewis Carroll or C.S Lewis.


Do check my website for more details. I hope you will leave Oxford with many good memories and will want to come back again

I was born in Watlington, Oxfordshire, and educated at Lord Williams Grammar School, Thame, Oxfordshire.  I spent my professional life as a photographer, firstly in the Royal Navy Fleet Air Arm, followed by a career in industrial, commercial photography & film making in Oxford’s automotive industry, before spending 10 years creating audio-visual presentations,  and finally moving to sales & marketing in the same field.  


On retirement I trained as an Oxford Green Badge Guide, and have enjoyed this occupation for the past 11 years. My other interests are local history, reading, walking, photography, seagoing travel and bellringing.

A graduate of Oxford University, I returned to live in the city ten years ago and qualified as a city guide in 2011. 

Although a journalist by background, I am a historian by inclination and have written extensively on a wide range of historical subjects. 

My aim is to provide a lively introduction to the city suitable for visitors of all ages that will entertain as much as inform.
