I am a lifelong lover of history and worked as a teacher in London for many years. I am passionate about the social and political history of London and the story of the lives of Londoners over the centuries. I aim to run walks which are fun and informative and which present an intimate view of London’s history and heritage.
If you are someone who has lived here for many years I can tell you about aspects of the city which lie beneath the surface. I am happiest when people say “I’ve lived in London all my life and I never knew that” or “I pass this way every day and I have never noticed that.”
Richard’s engaging and thoroughly researched walks are a great way to learn about the many stories of London in a relaxed and informal way. He can tell you how London grew from the fields beneath our streets to the huge and cosmopolitan urban society we live in today.
