Created London's first women's history running tour 2015
Formulated Hackney's (London's?) first alternative statue tour 2020
Named an 'East London Innovator' & commended for World Travel Market 'Responsible Tourism Awards' 2020
Even before Covid, after decades around the globe, I'd concluded that travel is partly state of mind. Since 2012 at Hackney Tours I've been taking people deeper into their own backyard, telling hidden stories and discovering the wonder on our own doorstep*. Why not love where you live?
Whether it's my women's history running tour, the Subversive Stoke Newington walk, or interrogating the street art manifesto, I try to do something different - provoking thought and promoting connection.
Everyone thinks they know the area, but I'll show you it in a different way: whether it's the radical history that's shaped this end of the capital or the contemporary street art that brightens its walls.
This year Hackney Tours is going more socially-minded, giving more back to the community: helping indie business survive and social enterprise thrive. I'll be giving back more (volunteering, free mental & physical health offerings) so when you support me at Hackney Tours, you help me give something back.
So let's get out there and be fully in the world. There's so much to explore, connect with - and appreciate!
