The people behind Step Outside Guides are Francesca Fenn, Margie Skinner and Sam Fenn.


Francesca and Margie are mums who have taken their children on adventures in London for many years.


Francesca has spent many happy hours working out routes and themes for the Guides, finding lovely surprises and regaining a child’s eye view of this wonderful city. She has experience in researching and producing educational programmes for primary-age children.


Margie has thirteen years-experience working for a leading publisher and is in charge of producing and editing the Guides.


Sam is Francesca’s son and a talented young illustrator. The personalities his pictures have given the animal guides are part of what make these books so special.

“There is no nicer way to explore London than as a family or group - we know that small details excite and inspire children as much as the big sights!


The pleasure of discovering London for yourself is very special, and we have designed Step Outside Guides to enable and encourage other families to explore and enjoy the capital.”
