Camden Tour Guides Association

After working in Camden for 10 years I thought that I knew the borough until I took the Camden Tour Guide Association course which uncovered the layers of history and meaning which make the various neighbourhoods of Camden so fascinating and lively.

I love to put together walks which follow my passions, from magic to music, people to pubs!
As a native Londoner, I love the way the city is always changing and revealing new areas to be
discovered, giving us new stories to share with our fellow Londoners and visitors.

My degree in history, geography and politics is the perfect background for tour guiding. As a former careers advisor I should have given myself the advice to lead tours long ago; it’s so much fun!

Really interesting walk around Bloomsbury with great facts and descriptions about buildings and people in the area connected to magic in some way. Lots of extra facts and tips thrown in as well. We had a great afternoon. Thank you . I can definitely recommend taking this tour with Maggie

New Magic Bloomsbury walk was quite different to usual energetic full of facts ones. Slower pace, less known facts, but on overall not bad at all. The new guide Maggie was attentive, friendly and approachable.

Well, what can I say, other than another great London guided walk, this time by, to me, a new Maggie? So, I have had walks in Bloomsbury before, but have never been taken to the places we saw. Which is all so refreshing. But beware the start, which is not in Bloomsbury, but, very magical. You will not be disappointed!
