I present talks and guided walks based on the topics covered in my blog (in particular, the burial grounds of London) – please check back here for details of how to book.  If you are interested in inviting me to speak at your event, please get in touch using the contact form at the bottom of the page.

I now also have a dedicated website for my tourguiding – Walks with Caroline – but I will also continue to update this page with any upcoming events.
