David Coatsworth

David’s diverse career path has served as a great preparation for his current role as a Back-Roads Tour Leader!

 

His career to date has included, London’s Metropolitan Police Force, Television & Film production work with the BBC and major feature film productions, Overseas Humanitarian Aid Work, before shorter spells working as a senior manager in the Exhibition Industry and in Civil Engineering.

 

In mid life, David spent five years as a student at the countries’ two Ancient Universities of Oxford & Cambridge, where he gained BA & MA degrees. He then went on to spend 10 years working in a number of research & analysis roles. More recently David has been found conducting civil marriage ceremonies at many wonderful venues throughout Kent in his post as a County Registrar.  

 

David loves to meet new people from far and wide. He has a real passion for history, art, literature, theatre, film & TV, architecture, agriculture, food, sport and much else besides. David is absolutely delighted that he is now able to share the wonderfully rich and diverse Bounty of the British Isles with his tour groups.

 

David lives in rural Kent ‘The Garden of England’ with his actress wife and their 17-year-old daughter, his two adult sons live in London and Manchester.

David has travelled widely and has previously lived in London, Oxford, Cambridge and California (U.S.A.).

 

Ps does David look vaguely familiar to you? Take a closer look at the Game/Gun Keeper wearing a floppy hat in Colin Firth’s famous version of Pride & Prejudice! But as David says, “that’s another story”.
