What you'll do

We explore Brighton from a lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans and queer perspective, in a colourful 90-minute walk along the beach and historic city centre. This tour won the iGap Travel Award for the LGBT Tour of the Year UK 2018, and Time Out called it the '5th Best Thing to Do in Brighton'. We take in over 200 years of history including Regency Dandies, 1960s lesbian and gay life, and political activism. We discover prominent historical figures including Lord Byron, Oscar Wilde and Dusty Springfield, as well as some extraordinary unsung heroes, including a 19th-century lesbian diarist, an Edwardian 'drag king' and a 'same-sex' marriage in 1923.

I’m a Member of the Institute of Tourist Guiding and am held accountable to their Code of Professional Conduct. From 2001-2013 I worked on the LGBTQ History Tour of Soho with the community development organisation centred, where I developed the tour content and trained new accredited guides. When not guiding, I can be often found training English pronunciation and performing improvised comedy.
