Born, brought up, and educated in Camden, it’s hardly surprising that Jo qualified as a Camden tour guide! Having now escaped from the Civil Service (and yes for part of that career she also worked in Camden), she is also a City of London Guide. Passionate and enthusiastic about history she has worked in the British Museum (where she enjoys taking visitors and is now one of their volunteer guides) and the Royal Courts of Justice. While happy to lead walks throughout the borough she gains particular pleasure guiding in Holborn and Bloomsbury and telling some of the stories about the areas where she grew up and where some of her family and friends still live (names have been changed to protect the innocent.) She also guides at the Foundling Museum and is the Course Tutor on the Camden course.
