Very few guides in London concentrate on Women's history, in fact you are more likely to get women excluded completely from London tours so I have set about changing that in a big way. Although we do not ignore those glaringly obvious sites on route that everyone knows and has heard of they are not the focus. We learn about women who broke the mould, who fearlessly swam against the tide and whose bravery made life better for the generations who followed.

Stop At: Whitechapel Road

Through the bustling high street of Whitechapel with its grade II listed houses and its mosques and Churches. We will hear about the brave women who were part of the WWI resistance, the kindness of female Philanthropists of the late 1800s. Then I take you into the heart of the anarchistic movement of the 1890s.

Duration: 1 hour

Stop At: Brick Lane

The area Monica Ali highlighted in her book of the same name. It's seen swathes of immigrants from Huguenot weevers to Jewish Tailors and then finally Bangladeshi restauranteurs. Stacked to the brim with history dating back to the early 1700s but this tour remember is about the women who were quiet revolutionaries in this area

Duration: 20 minutes

Stop At:

An area which has featured in many famous films and still has a feel of times gone by with the pretty houses bunched with wooden shutters just as the Huguenots used to have. Extraordinarily there were several females who lived alone in the 1700s here!

Duration: 10 minutes

Stop At: Spitalfields

The delight of this market opened by Queen Victoria. The surrounding streets steeped in the history of Sylvia Pankhurst/Mary Wollstonecraft/Sara Wesker -screaming out the revolutionaries of the last three hundred years.
