~Specialising in art tours for the discerning traveller~

It is with sadness that I have decided to cease operating  St James's Art Tours . The last two years have been very difficult, the future looks bumpy and the momentum has slowed. This seems the right moment for me close the business and thank my lucky stars for so many years of comparatively easy travel.  

I first led an art group, to Venice and Ravenna, in 1987 and since then I continued to lead and organise art tours with much enthusiasm. St James's Art Tours was founded in 1998, as one of the very first organisations of its kind, and  grew and developed until 2020. The whole period was one of continual excitement, discovering new places, re-visiting previous ones, meeting different peoples and cultures, always something new to discover. These years are full of rich memories. I was fortunate to be doing something I enjoyed and which provided so much stimulation. 
The most important dynamic to any group is the participants and I have met  many diverse, interesting and delightful people; non of you are ever forgotten. I cannot thank you enough for your support for the tours and for enriching them. I am also grateful to other lecturers who led tours for me and often became very popular. Above all I am indebted to Tony Giambruno, who has been my colleague and right arm since the inception of St James's Art Tours. We did it together and I could not have managed without his diligence and honesty.  He will continue to run his company, Millennium Tours, specialising in group tours  for societies. 
I may well continue with my zoom travel talks over the depth of the winter, so if you are interested in following these, please do not unsubscribe. All previous talks, given over the last two years, have been recorded and edited and are available on request. See under tab for Lectures
