Alexandra Jackson lives in London and spends a lot of time with her family in the countryside in Wiltshire, to the west of London. Alexandra’s love of history dates back to her childhood curiosity about the past, and her fascination with stories and legends. “Why?” is probably her most frequently used word. After studying History at Oxford University, she began a career in finance, first as a stock broker and then as a financial journalist, writing a daily investment column for The Times newspaper. After taking a break in her career to raise four children, Alexandra is now returning to her first love: history and heritage. She particularly enjoys making connections between past and present, using her experience and expertise to interpret historic episodes in a more accessible way. She loves sharing her ideas as an expert guide for Context Travel.
