Thanks for visiting my website.  I write travel related features because of an insatiable curiousity about other countries and cultures, but also write on other subjects - see list here.

I write for a clutch of inflight magazines / specialist titles too.

Some reader revews: 

fresh revelations ..narrative storytelling style... much more readable than the usual fact-packed miscellany' ...  'Gilly has done an excellent job of finding odd, unusual facts instead of run-of-the mill touristy information'   '.... ''fascinating read which added greatly to my knowledge of unusual London '...although not fictional, Gilly endows her books with a quality seen in most novels; curiousity and suspense   '.....  By the book’s nature, we lose chronology and the past feels it is rubbing up against the present ..... 'a hugely interesting read from start to finish'...... 'full of humour, interest and information'
