Welcome to North East England
I am bilingual and fluent in English and German.
I specialise in bespoke quality tours across North East England.
My passion for this region is passed on to visitors who enjoy a memorable insight into one of Britain’s hidden gems.
WHAT'S ON OFFER
Looking to explore our region on foot? Discover Newcastle’s hidden gems, Durham’s great history or a hike along Hadrian’s Wall during a guided tour.
Bringing a group to North East England. I’m happy to jump on ther coach at a place convenient to you and take you on a journey of our region!
Travelling from further afield as a famlily or group of friends? A driver guided tour gives you the freedom to experience the best of Northern England.
Together with Paul and Anna I operate Northern Secrets which creates bespoke and small group multi-day trips to Northern England.
Bilingual in German & English, I moved to the UK from Germany in 2004, studied business, tourism and urban regeneration at Newcastle and set about building a tourism business thereon.
I later trained as a professional Blue Badge tourist guide (probably one of the hardest but also most enjoyable things to do) before starting my inbound tour business Northern Secrets Ltd in 2010.
Since then, my company has welcomed several thousand visitors to Northern England.
I expanded my portfolio by launching Experience North Ltd specialising in destination management to Northern England.

The idea for Northern Secrets came way back in 1999 whilst still at school in Germany. I always knew that running a successful company and bringing visitors to Northern England was my clear ambition.
After working in marketing in Aachen (Germany) and a visit to university studying Tourism, Urban Regeneration and Business Management in Newcastle upon Tyne (England), I felt ready for the potentially biggest challenge so far: setting up a business (from scratch)…
Looking at our company background, Northern Secrets was born in 2008 with a simple idea: create memorable vacations, tours and city breaks for you, our clients, to Northern Britain, the country’s hidden gem and a completely underestimated part of the world! Therefore it is our mission to putting you at the heart of everything.
Our team of dedicated travel consultants have an abundance of destination knowledge to share. We also only use personally certified tourist guides who understand & share the importance of excellent customer service, flexibility and passion to look after all of your needs throughout your visit making them more a travel companion.
I truly love the work we do – there is nothing more rewarding than sharing our passion, experiences and knowledge to create that inspiring trip for you. Enjoy intimate small group tours, relaxed vacations by coach or indulge in the luxury of a fully customised tour. The choice if yours. You can be as involved as you like in the planning process or simply leave everything to us – giving you ultimate peace of mind.
I am proud of the fact that we can offer such a flexible and personalised service. This is the foundation Northern Secrets Ltd is based on and shall always remain…
