Jane Hickey is a prize winning Blue Badge guide for London and day trips out of London. She grew up in her father’s hotel in Dublin, Ireland and despite early attempts to branch out she has consistently returned to the hospitality industry in various guises. She has lived in London all her adult life, qualifying as a chartered accountant with PWC where her clients included the InterContinental Hotel Group. Following a spell in finance with Trusthouse Forte Hotels she returned to the consultancy arm of PWC working in the Tourism & Leisure Group, looking at investment opportunities in the industry. She spent time in Hungary and Poland with PWC in the 90s privatizing state owned hotel and leisure groups. Having taken a break to raise her 3 children she then undertook an intensive 2 year course in London launching her guiding career.
Since qualifying as a guide she has undertaken further courses in the City of London, Windsor & Eton, and she is currently studying for a Certificate in Early Medieval Art and Architecture at the Victoria & Albert Museum. Jane very much looks forward to showing her London to Context Travel visitors and particularly enjoys looking after family groups.
