Tina Cresswell BSc. Hons
Southampton is where I lived when my children were small, so it’s a place very close to my heart. Earlier in my life I was an Air Hostess for British Caledonian Airways.
More recently I have spent the last 12 years lecturing onboard cruise ships and acting as a freelance tour manager. During my travels I enjoyed participating in a food tour in Madrid and then I tried one in Barcelona. They are great fun and I realised I could combine my love of good food and fine dining with travel and history.
We have developed these new experiences in Southampton and Weymouth to showcase the best venues and delicious local foods and to evoke the fascinating local history. I want to tell you tales of pirates and smuggling, of Kings and Queens, Pilgrim Fathers, the Second World War Blitz, whist offering guests delicious tastes and treats.
