Services

We offer an extensive range of services including consultancy, training, workshops and even fun and exciting motorised tours.

I’m currently working on a new tour to celebrate the author, Jane Austen. During ‘Jane Austen’s Sussex Tours’ you will experience the places in Brighton and Worthing she wrote about, visited and lived in – during her stay in Sussex at the end of 1805. More details to follow soon.

One of our new tours is ‘ 50 Gems of Sussex’, all mentioned in my latest book of the same title, featuring interesting places in Sussex that everyone should visit.
