My name is Caroline Swan and I’m a qualified and fully-insured tour guide and historian operating in London. I’m passionate about the history of this incredible city and aim to share its stories and secrets in an engaging and accessible way. I present guided tours and online lectures covering a variety of topics on London’s history, from the prehistoric and Roman periods all the way to the present day, with my particular interest being the city’s many burial grounds and what we can learn about the London and Londoners of the past and present from these amazing places.
