f you have found my award-winning online guide Chester: a Virtual Stroll Around the Walls stimulating, you may also be interested in treating yourself to one of my real guided walks!
Right: these Masters architecture students from Birmingham City University, studying Chester for their dissertation, joined me to explore modern developments in the city.
No fair weather guide I, for my walks take place all year round, are easily arranged, friendly, informal and very informative. Tours take place at your own pace and at times to suit you and your party and you may choose to take your lunch / cofee / beer breaks as you see fit - a fine opportunity to visit some of Chester's historic hostelries!
"On behalf of the Historical Fellowship, we wish to thank you for the talk you gave us at the hotel, during which everyone learned a lot about Chester. Also, your walk around the alls was fascinating. We had a very enjoyable weeks' holiday in your lovely city".
Prior committments allowing, I'm happy to accept your booking at very short notice so don't hesitate to give me a ring when you're in town.
I welcome enquiries from everyone and of all ages, from schools to pensioners walking groups. If you belong to an arts or photography society or club, you may be interested to know that I offer sketching and photographic guided walks intended just for you. If you're a student, or otherwise newly resident in Chester, my walks are a fine opportunity to get to know your wonderful new home. Chester enjoys a growing reputation as a conference and business centre. Take a break from work and let me show you around- a bit of fresh air and exercise followed by drinks or dinner in one of our historic hostelries can work wonders to sharpen the mind!
"Thank you for the informative and entertaining tour of Chester- the team enjoyed learning more about Chester and I have received some great feedback".
