Come and discover the Heart of England

Would you like to discover the birthplace of the Industrial Revolution, its dark satanic mills, its blast furnaces, its workshops, the world's first steam engines, iron bridges and other great feats of engineering?  Or are you more interested in sedate stately homes and gardens, magnificent domineering castles, or towering, ornate cathedrals? 

How about exploring the beautiful serene honey-coloured stone villages of the Cotswolds in their bucolic setting of rolling hills and traditional dry-stone walls, which helped inspire William Morris and Gordon Russell and the Arts & Crafts Revival?  


Enjoy a fine meal and cask ale in a traditional English pub or sample the delights of the Ludlow Food Festival.   Meander through the streets of William Shakespeare's Stratford-on-Avon or the college quads of Oxford, or take a punt on the river!

Come amble through the displays of the Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery and its superb collection of Pre-Raphaelite paintings, the works of Edward Burne-Jones, and gaze on the incredible Staffordshire Hoard of Anglo-Saxon treasure.

Soak up the rich history of the region - whether your interest is in the Romans, the Anglo-Saxons, the Wars of the Roses, the English Civil War, or the Chartist's push for social and electoral reform.

Come and discover all this and more with me.  I am a professionally qualified 'Blue Badge' Tour Guide for the Heart of England offering coach, car and walking tours throughout the region.
