I've written about travel and holidays since the late 1980s for numerous newspapers and magazines.


I am a long-standing contributor to the travel section of The Daily Telegraph. I am a resident travel expert for the Telegraph on Bath, writing reviews of the best places to stay, eat and drink in the city, as well as cover sightseeing and things to do. I also provide expert coverage of the Caribbean for The Telegraph, especially of Barbados, St Lucia and Grenada, and write articles on many other topics, including consumer advice, hotels and cruises.


An archive of my Telegraph articles can be found here.

Recent articles on tour guiding, Bath and the West Country include:

* 'It's great to be practising this ancient art again' – cheer as tour guiding returns to Britain

* Thermae Bath Spa has reopened to tourists – and it's blissfully crowd-free

* Why now is the perfect time to explore Britain's finest cities

* How the historic city of Bath will reopen to tourists this summer

* A tale of two Plymouths, 400 years after the voyage of the Mayflower

* Stonehenge has reopened, and there's never been a better time to visit

Can't access articles due to the paywall? I can share PDF versions on a non-commercial basis.

You can also find my detailed and honest reviews of best hotels and b & bs in Bath for the Telegraph here.


I have also written many articles for other national newspapers. For many years I was one of the main contributors to the travel section of the Mail on Sunday, providing advice in The  Crafty Traveller consumer column: you can find hundreds of my articles here.
