Chichester, Goodwood, The South Downs and Sussex – Immerse yourself in History, Culture, Art and Nature

As a professional tour guide and history graduate, I am passionate about bringing the past alive. Drawing upon my extensive knowledge and love of the area, I present a series of walks, talks and tours which are fun and sociable as well as being enlightening. Who really enjoys exploring and learning using a phone app or struggling to read tiny print in a leaflet? Take a look at my calendar and join me on one of the public events. Or maybe you’d like me to arrange a bespoke tour or talk for a group of you. Click on the tabs above to view my wide range of walking tours and talks – something to interest everyone. I look forward to meeting you sometime soon!

The most recent entries in my journal are shown below – I try to it keep up to date – recording visits to interesting places, exhibitions, books and articles I’ve read, plus details of bespoke tours and talks arranged for special interest groups. You will notice that sometimes I do stray beyond the border of Sussex!
