As a proud, native Manxwoman, I am passionate about sharing the delights of the island.
Allow me to tell you about our history and heritage: art and architecture, wheels and wallabies, kippers and queenies, bonnag and beer, castles and cathedrals, steam-trains and trams, tails and tales, smugglers and slavers, folklore and fable, records and races, Tynwald and taxes, Vikings and vigils, chapels and churches, crosses and cairns, tholtans and theatre, our mountain and mines.
I’d be delighted to guide you on leisurely walks, or in your car, or to step onto your minibus or coach.

Chris has enjoyed a varied career as a Manx Advocate, Alpine Chalet-Host and Vintage Tram Driver before embarking on a history and heritage degree course in 2015.
He is a keen walker and particularly enjoys opening up hidden corners of the Island to visitors. He also has a passion for the Island’s industrial past and is keen to involve our unique heritage railways in his excursions wherever possible.
Chris is a competent French speaker having spent seven years living and working in the French Alps, and is qualified to guide in the French language.
I’m an experienced registered Blue Badge guide for groups and individuals and will plan bespoke tours if requested.
It gives me pleasure to share my knowledge of the Isle of Man and to bring its fascinating sites to life.
I have an in-depth interest in, and knowledge of:
Manx folklore, culture and Manx Gaelic, and
Social, family, and natural history of the Island.
I am happy to tour with you in your vehicle – car, minibus or coach, or to guide leisurely to moderate walks around the Island’s towns, villages and countryside.
