What we're about

Welcome!
This group has morphed from where it initially started which was an invitation to explore Hidden London. I have made a decision that every year the group will focus on a different way to explore our beautiful city and connect to likeminded people.

Following the last 2 years of Covid and restrictions, it is only natural that we now all value the simpler things in life we might have taken for granted before, more deeply.

I am inviting you to see your life, your world with new eyes....
I am inviting you to become an explorer in your own city.
An explorer in the world.
An explorer with yourself and others.
I invite you to awaken awe and playfulness and see what happens....

Whether you have just moved to London or have lived here all your life, or if you live outside of London but always wanted to explore the forgotten or hidden parts of London, while meeting new people then this invitation is for you, if deep down inside you have an adventurer and explorer waiting to come out! All adults are welcome.

I will be running a variety of events: my aim is to put events together that will unite people to come together in this amazing city (and sometimes even venture further afield!) and just have fun. And in the process slow down to really take in the beauty that is life and make magic moments.

IS THIS GROUP FOR YOU?
This is for you if you are an adventurer/explorer at heart, you are open to new experiences, curious, energetic and enthusiastic about life and living in London and interested in exploring it in different ways. For me the lure of setting up this group wasn't just about getting out the house to see the city I have lived in for so many years but rather to explore London, in a new and exciting way! And it goes much deeper than that: it's about creating a sense of novelty, awe and wonder about our lives and our surroundings. For all we think we know so well and there's nothing left to discover, once we decide we are at heart "intrepid explorers" in our own lives and in our own city then we can choose to see everything around us with curiosity and fresh eyes and a renewed sense of wonder. It's an almost child like ability of playfulness, that we tend to lose as we become adults. This is what I hope to achieve with this group: recapture our sense of playfulness, discovery and wonder, while making connections with others! The magical moments happen when we are brave enough to explore and then make a connection with others on the same path!

MY EXPERIENCE:
I spent years working in top 5 star hotels as a Concierge so I got to know all the secret places that few people know about in London. In addition to that I have a passion for London and it's unique character and all the gems it hides in plain sight!I have escorted some friends and even business clients through London and they all loved how they were shown parts of London they didn't expect to see, and how much they enjoyed it! I am now also a Life Coach and Healer, so I love the idea of connecting people especially now following an extended period of Covid that will have affected our mental health and ability to connect with others.

Please feel free to drop me a line and suggest any events/activities you would like to take part in...all suggestions are welcome!
