Talks and tours
‘You have an extraordinary talent for rendering your erudition accessible’; ‘This has been the trip of a lifetime for me’; ‘Jon Cannon is as good as it gets as a scholarly authoritative lecturer’; ‘In a word, extraordinary’; ‘ a sensitive, funny man who brought to life … the medieval world.’; these are among kind comments received on the 8-day tour of English cathedrals I lead for Martin Randall Travel.
If this is true, it is because I love tourleading: there is simply no better way of unlocking the experience of these buildings and places. A list of my tours — whether touring England for Martin Randall Travel, discovering medieval East Anglia for Villiers Park, or leading groups round the cathedrals and great churches of the English west country — can be found on the drop-down tab.
I am, of course, particularly well-qualified when it comes to English medieval cathedrals, churches and history, but I also show people around the landscapes and heritage of two places that matter to me for personal reasons and longtime connection: prehistoric Wiltshire — and ancient China.
I am also an accredited NADFAS lecturer.
