Jane Parker

I am a qualified, accredited and insured Clerkenwell and Islington (CIGA) guide.

My guiding style is inclusive, open and friendly – I like to swop stories and engage with the group and this leads to a marvellous knowledge exchange.  

have lived in Islington, North London, since 1988 – it's an area I know very well.  I am intrigued by its vibrant and layered history, some of which often features on my blog, which is all about "the wonderful little details on, around and above London's streets"

I am an avid local historian and as such every walking tour I offer is designed and thoroughly researched by Yours Truly – in fact, the research never stops with walks getting amended or added to as new information comes to light. 

My guided walks are varied in subject matter but all different facets of my personailty. As you will see, some tours are generic 'hidden highlights', others are themed by subject such as pubs, parks, ghostsigns or Art Deco. Most tours are easy 90-minute strolls, though longer tours are available.

I am always coming up with new ideas for walking tours – a list of 'works in progress' can be found on my website – please do get in touch if you are interested in any of these or have ideas of your own.

Enquiries and bespoke commissions are always welcome – and I do venture outside of Islington (!) – please enquire if there is a specific area of London or a particular theme you are interested in and I will do my best to come up with something tailored just for you.   


I hope to see you soon,
