He spent the first 11 years of his life living in military quarters in Aldershot, whilst he father (a medic in the Parachute Regiment affectionately referred to as ‘Taff’, as all Welsh soldiers are) travelled the world on humanitarian missions. After leaving the Army in 1997, Dewi’s father moved the family to South Wales to be closer to the rest of their family. Whilst at school Dewi was spotted for his skills as a singer and performer and performed in concerts at venues such as the St David’s Hall in Cardiff and worked with production companies such as the BBC and ITV.

Dai Hill.

A historian, writer, and accidental Doctor Who locations expert, Dai is in love with the intricate complexities of the past, the infinite possibilities of the future, and he’s slightly baffled by the present.
Born and raised in South Wales, Dai has worked in various museums and currently works for the National Trust. He’s become a specialist in the history of Cymru and in our ancient Bardic literature, rendering him into someone you’d think would be really good but is actually really useless at a pub quiz.

Along the way he’s also written for theatre and radio and is an avid rugby fan. Given half a chance he’ll chat for days about Cardiff RFC and Cymru and their incredible characters and stories (with optional diagrams).

Dai’s love of Doctor Who was inspired by growing up among the locations of its filming. To see his own stomping grounds transformed into intergalactic adventures was enough to inspire a tiny mind and then he never really grew up. Today, Dai is an specialist in sharing stories, but really loves hearing other’s stories, whether from half-forgotten books hidden in the corners of old bookshops, from friends over pints in pubs, or from the visitors and tourists coming here from around the world.

Hamish Hutchison-Poyntz.

Hamish is originally from Vancouver, Canada. Having moved to London to follow his dream of taking part in its fantastic theatre scene, he’s fallen in love with the city and immensely enjoys getting to show it off to visitors. He’s a big fan of Doctor Who, Harry Potter, and all things sci-fi and fantasy. In his spare time, he loves to wander London’s canals, finding all the hidden secret hideaways.

Hannah Field.

Hannah grew up in Oxford, spent some time travelling the world and working in care before moving back to Oxford and wanting to share her city with people. In her spare time Hannah loves playing boardgames, watching movies and listening to live music. Her favourite authors include Terry Pratchett and Phillip Pullman.

As well as general City and University tours, Hannah specialises in themed tours such as Inspector Morse, A Discovery of Witches, His Dark Materials, Ghosts, LGBTQ+.


Nic Linton.

After graduating from Manchester University in the mid-1990s with a master’s in creative writing Nic set out on an epic cycle ride from Sydney to Manchester. The solo adventure took him across the Australian outback, through Southeast Asian jungles to the Himalaya and Central Asian deserts beyond. Two years, and twenty-five thousand miles later, he peddled off the Dover ferry and into a small U.K. based travel firm to lead specialist groups, for organisations such as the Asia Society and Oxford Alumni.

Nic headed to China in 1999 and spent fifteen years curating exclusive experiences including private banquets on the Great Wall of China and wilderness horse treks on the Afghan border.

When he moved back to ‘the city of dreaming spires’ ten years ago, for his daughter’s education, it wasn’t long before Nic was itching to share Oxford’s hidden secrets with the rest of the world. He started giving virtual tours, then qualified as a professional Green Badge guide. Nic’s international experience has made him receptive to changing local conditions and how best to tailor experiences to suit visitors’ needs. He is an accredited Christ Church guide which is handy for Harry Potter fans. Other topics up for grabs include film locations, ancient pubs, and infamous locals. Whatever your interests. Whether you are looking for an introduction to Town and Gown or a tailored family urban adventure, Nic aims to provide a healthy mix of history, storytelling, and fun!
