MEET THE STORYTELLER
James Cowan

Mine is a tale of two cities: my one-time home city of Cardiff, Capital of Wales, and my new home, Copenhagen, Capital of Denmark.

I grew up with Cardiff on my doorstep and lived there most of my adult life. Discovering its incredible but still largely unknown history became an ever growing passion. This led me to develop walking tours telling people the history, legends and ghost stories of Cardiff and Wales – tales of Kings, Princes, and a one-time tiny town on the Taff that overnight become the world’s biggest coal port, from which emerged the grand domes, towers and columns of its beautiful civic centre….and all the time, in its woodlands and castles lurk ancient legends and tales of ghosts!

I am delighted that, thanks to Voicemap, I have been able to convert some of these tours into self guided audio tours.

Since 2019 I have had a new home, Copenhagen, and I have fallen in love with this city. Discovering its history, its character, and its characters past and present, has been an all-consuming pleasure, always full of surprises. I am delighted to offer my first Copenhagen tour, which has been a labour of love to research and develop.

Whether you are in Cardiff or Copenhagen, I hope I can help you see these cities in a new and different light, and eager for more!
