Sue

Sue qualified as a City of London guide in 2008. Her day job is being Director of Information & Research for the European offices of a US law firm whose London office is next to the Guildhall in the City. Having realised she couldn't escape all the history around her, with a life long interest in local history and many years experience of teaching lawyers and legal information professionals, meant the guiding route seemed a natural progression.

Sue's family have lived in Hackney and Islington for centuries and many of her walks take place in those two contrasting areas of London – including Hoxton, Shoreditch, Dalston and Stoke Newington. A recent walk devised for the Hackney Society concentrated on Shoreditch's role in the printing trade – including those firms which print money. She especially enjoys leading walks in areas not normally on the tourist map, and those in which she has personal tales to relate – the ancestors in Piccadilly and her time at the London School of Economics (for example) aim to bring those areas of London to life. Amongst all the facts and other anecdotes!
