What They Said

Comments from participants on Anthony’s walks

'Thank you for the very informative and entertaining walking tour of Marylebone. Your tour gave me so much more context to understanding the area and now I cannot help noticing the positioning of all the front door letterboxes on Harley Street!' – Isabel, June 2014

'Thank you for a thoroughly enjoyable tour of Marylebone. I've lived here for over a year and was amazed how much I've overlooked. It has reawoken my curiosity about the statues and buildings in the area and beyond'. – David, June 2014

Feedback from participants on Anthony’s tours at the Society of Antiquaries

'Super talk’

‘An absorbing talk’

'We all had a fab time, thank you for showing us around' (February 2015)

'This morning enjoyed our visit to amazing Society of Antiquaries and fabulous tour led by Anthony'

'Anthony gave us a wonderfully informative account of the origins of the Society.  His infectious tnthusiasm for the Society and its collections was evident thoughout as were his deep knowledge and his ability to highlight points of particular interest.  He was outsandingly successful in judging how much information to give and present it simply and effectively.  One of the best presentations we have ever had' (London A**** Society, March 2016)

Some comments by members of the Grolier Club of New York after a special bibliophile tour in St James's in May 2015

'Anthony Davis is an articulate and knowledgeable guide to London.  His abilty to bring to life the literary history of the area adds a unique "bibliowow! to any tour.'

'Thanks for showing us around the St. James 'hood - wonderful anecdotes about its former residents and viewing the Queen and her entourage as they departed Westminster was an added bonus.'

'He seems to know his neighborhoods inside and out, and kept us all very entertained. Also very observant of keeping us together and happy.'

'This was a terrific walk, wonderful for book lovers of all kinds. Anthony is a distinguished bibliophile, with a deep knowledge of London authors, collectors, printers and binders. He puts all of this in the context of the history and architecture of St James's, with a sense of humor and wit. Recommended unreservedly!'
