` Fantastic experience. Learnt so much about what is hiding in plain sight! ' Mark, Discover Hidden Sites Guest

I will take you on an interactive walk through beautiful hidden gardens very near the usual tourist sites but rarely visited by most tourists.

Firstly we will hear about the sensational story of 19-year-old Katherine Howard, Henry VIII's fifth wife who was executed for adultery. Discover scandals and court plots that make Game of Thrones seem dull!
* Secondly, we will learn about Jonathan Tyers `The Maker of Dreams ' and owner of the Vegas and Disney of the 18th century. Discover how Jonathan became wealthy and inspired generations of wealth creators!
* Thirdly, we'll see the home of the suffragist Millicent Fawcett, whose house entertained 19th century feminists, bohemians, and radicals. Discover how Millicent changed the world!

Finally we will look at how the stories of Katherine, Jonathan and Millicent are all about your values and how you choose to interpret their time on earth!
Other things to note
This is a gentle walk that will take place in all types of weather. The last stop is Fentiman Park, which is minutes away from the Vauxhall underground, bus, and railway stations. I will provide hand sanitiser.

Amazing from start to finish! Terry is such a knowledgeable (and kind) tour guide, he opened our eyes to a whole new side of London. I booked this tour for my husband, who’s the history buff, but I loved it too. Terry makes exploring history fun for everyone and was so tolerant of our baby crying, he even helped us carry the pram! Would definitely check out his other tours.

Remember the best teacher you had when you were younger...who genuinely listened to you and leveraged their whole personality to help you fall in love with a subject? That’s what it’s like to go on this tour.

Book this experience. This was my third and last tour with Terry and it was truly wonderful. The whole tour (like all of Terry's tours) is a conversational learning experience that by the end, Terry feels like a friend showing us around who is equipped with a vast amount of knowledge. Every tour with Terry begins and ends with a quote surrounding a theme that is tied up in a little bow and you come away with a curiosity for more. Truly worth more than what you pay for - Thank you Terry!

Great tour- Terry is passionate, friendly, welcoming and poses insightful questions to get you thinking. The tour is interactive and he asks you related questions to the tour, so you stay engaged and interested. I would highly recommend.

I booked this trip for my parents as they were coming to visit me in London post lockdown. Terry was informative, engaging, and all-around wonderful. We went to places in London I've walked past before and didn't realise had such a historical significance. Terry really pulled us into the experience and of all the walking tours I've done aroud the world, this was my favourite. My parents and fiance couldn't thank me enough for arranging it and absolutly loved it. When Terry left us, it genuinely felt like one of your friends had left the group and gone home. I will be doing another one of Terry's tours when my parents come back to London.

I would highly recommend this tour!! Terry made it fun, informative and thought provoking. As I Londoner, I thought I knew London relatively well. However, I was pleasantly surprised to see some really beautiful places and interesting sites for the first time with histories that were unknown to me. We will definitely be booking again!
