Sue

Sue is a Freeman of the City of London, a botanist and a water-colourist. She’s an expert on the Fleet River and a professionally qualified Blue Badge and City of London Guide. She wrote the Life in the Mediaeval City chapter in our book. She guides many London Walks, ranging from Kew Gardens to the Fleet River to Bizarre London (her tour de force) and points beyond. But no need to just take it from me. Why not lend Sue an ear? Here’s a delightful little podcast she did about her Bizarre London walk.
