A little bit about Helen

I am a Blue Badge Guide for the Heart of England and a Green Badge Guide for Oxford. I have a background in history, with special interests in theatre, literature, architecture and the arts. I love to show visitors the hidden secrets of this fascinating part of the country.
I am able to tailor tours to varied interests and requirements. I have worked with families with young children, individual travellers as well as groups and societies. I previously worked for the Shakespeare Birthplace Trust and live close to Stratford upon Avon, so regularly give tours of the town and surrounding area, on foot or by coach. I am a qualified teacher of English as a Foreign language and often work with overseas groups practising English as part of their tour. I have developed an interest in the history of Methodism and the Wesleys, particularly in connection with Oxford and as part of general tours of the city and university. I am happy to discuss requirements to ensure you get the tour that best suits you.

Personal Interests

As well as drama, I love singing and am a member of two choirs. I have a lifelong interest in sewing and textiles, and enjoy the history of the arts and crafts around the Cotswolds, the traditions of cloth making and design. I have an interest in gardens and have conducted garden tours in the Cotswolds with groups and independent travellers.
