An American simply by accident of birth, Margaret moved to London over 19 years ago and hasn't looked back since! With a keen interest in History - and a BA degree to match - Margaret prides herself on her knowledge of the amazing city she calls home.

Social history is her real expertise, with sound understanding of the day-to-day lives of Londoners over the past centuries, and a major focus on the loves, lives, and losses of all our greatest (and some not so great...) Kings and Queens.

American friendliness, a flair for the dramatic, a good sense of humo(u)r, and an unending love affair with King Charles II, all come together to help Margaret make you fall in love with London just like she did.
