Mark

I love history and finding out its hidden stories. London is an amazing place to wet the appetite for an interesting fact, some juicy gossip, or who the most influential people were who made their mark on the city. Some good and some not so good, but no matter what they did it's the discovery of it that makes it so intriguing. I have a qualification from the University of Westminster as a tour guide.
