I write features for magazines, newspapers and online publications as well as copywriting and books. I try to keep a tab of it all here...

Newark was at the very epicentre of the English Civil War, so it seems only fitting that the country's only museum dedicated to the conflict is housed in a historic house there. To celebrate its opening a massive re-enactment of the taking of Newark Castle shook the battlements once again. Very noisy but spectacular too. Read about it in this month's BH.

A bumper-sized British Heritage Winter Special is out. Alongside my usual column, where I discuss the glittering gee-gaws of Soho's fabric stores, the wonderful Italian restaurant Villa di Geggiano, the London Review Bookshop, Barbican Centre and Greyfriars Church, I visit the reborn Dreamland funfair in Margate.
I've also created a guide to getting the most out of London in winter. Brrr.

September's online column for British Heritage went live today, a little earlier than usual because there's so much exciting stuff to do in London next month. I can't wait!

Something a little different for British Heritage today. I'm starting the first of a few in-depth specials on attractions in London. This week, it's the wonderful art deco/Tudor Eltham Palace.

Another week, another online column for British Heritage. This time I'm at Kew, enjoying the gardens - and some of their less well-known neighbours.

An exciting day for me; my first Around Town Online column for British Heritage. It will be running independently from the print version, and fortnightly to start with.
