` Fantastic experience. Learnt so much about what is hiding in plain sight! ' Mark, Discover Hidden Sites Guest

I will take you on an interactive walk through beautiful hidden gardens very near the usual tourist sites but rarely visited by most tourists.

Firstly we will hear about the sensational story of 19-year-old Katherine Howard, Henry VIII's fifth wife who was executed for adultery. Discover scandals and court plots that make Game of Thrones seem dull!
* Secondly, we will learn about Jonathan Tyers `The Maker of Dreams ' and owner of the Vegas and Disney of the 18th century. Discover how Jonathan became wealthy and inspired generations of wealth creators!
* Thirdly, we'll see the home of the suffragist Millicent Fawcett, whose house entertained 19th century feminists, bohemians, and radicals. Discover how Millicent changed the world!

Finally we will look at how the stories of Katherine, Jonathan and Millicent are all about your values and how you choose to interpret their time on earth!
Other things to note
This is a gentle walk that will take place in all types of weather. The last stop is Fentiman Park, which is minutes away from the Vauxhall underground, bus, and railway stations. I will provide hand sanitiser.

Great tour- Terry is passionate, friendly, welcoming and poses insightful questions to get you thinking. The tour is interactive and he asks you related questions to the tour, so you stay engaged and interested. I would highly recommend.

I would highly recommend this tour!! Terry made it fun, informative and thought provoking. As I Londoner, I thought I knew London relatively well. However, I was pleasantly surprised to see some really beautiful places and interesting sites for the first time with histories that were unknown to me. We will definitely be booking again!

I booked this trip for my parents as they were coming to visit me in London post lockdown. Terry was informative, engaging, and all-around wonderful. We went to places in London I've walked past before and didn't realise had such a historical significance. Terry really pulled us into the experience and of all the walking tours I've done aroud the world, this was my favourite. My parents and fiance couldn't thank me enough for arranging it and absolutly loved it. When Terry left us, it genuinely felt like one of your friends had left the group and gone home. I will be doing another one of Terry's tours when my parents come back to London.

Terry is a great host. Making the audience follow a critical thinking process through the assessment of historical events made it more than just a tour but an educational experience. Not to be missed!

Terry shared with me lots of insight of London history. It was amazing to explore the special hidden areas with Terry. If you are travel to London, you should definitely go on Terry’s tour!

The history walk with Terry was fantastic; as someone who lives in the area we toured, I found Terry’s storytelling interesting, insightful and fun - and I learned things I did not know about the area, and more. I thoroughly enjoyed the experience, and would highly recommend it to anyone who wants to find out more about their city. In addition, it is also a great activity for these times when there are restrictions on what one is able to do.
