I just completed the Women Writers of Cambridge tour with Angela and she was so incredibly interesting and knowledgeable about this fascinating side of Cambridge. She also imparted so many ‘hidden’ facts and tidbits about Cambridge that only a long-standing resident can know about. Highly recommended for anyone with a fascination for the literary history of this very beautiful university city!

It was a pleasure to meet you and focus the tour, as requested, on Women Writers, Thinkers and Artists - and then to discuss their adventurousness and positivity with you! I'm so glad you enjoyed the tour. As you say, there are so many aspects of Cambridge and Literature which are not signalled in the environment: it's fun to locate the influences! I hope that the booklist and other information prove useful. Long may the good memories and inspiration last!

This was a fabulous tour organised around my requirements to give a university friend an introduction to the literary history of Cambridge and its intertwining with the history of the colleges. I cannot recommend Angela more highly for an absorbing 3 hour tour around this wonderful city

Our group went on the Women Writers of Cambridge tour, and it was hands-down the best tour I've ever been on. We saw through history with the eyes of our guide, Sophie, and walked the tracks of some of the greatest writers of all time. She made the landscape come alive with its secret past, by sharing stories and knowledge that not many would know. I absolutely loved it.

We have lived in Cambridge for nearly 20 years and we learned so much. The tour was personalised to our group (veterinarians) and was interesting and quirky, quite leisurely, and, well, fun.

What a wonderful tour my husband and I were lucky enough to have with Angela. I’d asked if she could do a bespoke guided literary tour of Cambridge, focusing on a few Cambridge poets. We were blown away by the effort Angela went to; the thorough research involved and the breadth of sites we were able to see and gain access to in Cambridge. We even received our own folder of information to enjoy after the tour. I couldn’t have hoped for more. It was an informative and engaging experience. Highly recommended.

Perhaps it's apt to say that some of the writers mentioned in your original request 'struck a chord' with me! Any research was a real pleasure and the musical links a serendipity! I'm so glad that this unusual, in-depth tour proved enjoyable for you: wish I had been able to provide better weather along with that folder! All good wishes, AB
