About me

Eccentric New Yorker with big hair, big personality and tons of energy to show you the best, non-mainstream bars and music scene in London. I have lived in London for almost 10 years and I also know the best markets and independent fashion shops to buy unique garments. I'm a proud father to a 1 year old so I have lately discovered cool, baby-friendly places and restaurants where adults can have a good time. I consider London my hometown; it is vibrant, forever morphing and just really cool. Don't stick to zone 1, there is a much bigger London out there!

I am a 31 year old born and bred London girl currently living in the vibrant heart of London's East End, Dalston. I spend half my time cycling around the city, finding hidden spots off the tourist track. I spend evenings trying London's diverse cuisine, dancing and often frequent the city's abundance of art galleries, cinema's and cultural events. I have a Masters degree in Chinese Studies and a wealth of travel experience around Asia; cycling around temples in Burma, working as a journalist in Taipei, studying yoga in South India. I am passionate about showing people from around the world my hometown. As a traveler, I know how unique your trip can became through the eyes of a local. I am also a certified yoga and rock climbing teacher and can take you climbing indoors in a London Castle!

Hello! I'm Inês, an artist who has gone through the motions in London! I love this city and I have worked in many of its different parts but kept my residential love in East, both North and South. London is really eclectic and I somehow embody that ethos, being slightly extroverted and with some quirks but currently appreciating the calmer aspects of life. Calmer doesn't mean boring!! It just means stress free!! I love meeting new people and swap life experiences. You will find in me a good listener but also someone who has a lot to give. I am not a fan of mainstream culture and I search for the niche, which normally comes with local life. As an amateur musician, I love going to see live music and smaller venues are also my favourite, with jazz and blues being a favourite, however, the local music scene is now so eclectic that I am always thrilled to listen to new bands as they are exciting and bring a refreshing genres mix. I am easy-going but you will find that I have a strong ethical background, so I will be avoiding some brands and places due to their unethical nature. Otherwise, for me, the main thing is to have a good time, with plenty of laughter!

I am an eccentric, wacky and original guy who dances to the beat of his own drum. I have lived in London for over 10 years so I know the city like the back of my hand, especially the up and coming areas like Peckham, Camden and Shoreditch. I am super adventurous and I'm always looking for new places to explore and new people to meet. I am a ping-pong semi pro, I play the ukulele and I pride myself on being able to speak a phrase in nearly every language. I am currently learning to speak Japanese and I have many stories and even more jokes to tell. Join me in London for a few hours or even for the whole day and I will introduce you to some of London's best local areas, as well as the main attractions - whatever you prefer.

We felt like real Londoners

It was our visit number 3 to London and we really wanted to get under the skin of the city and we found this Brixton tour by chance. It was the first time we heard about this place in london but we said why not? And city unscripted match us to Mr Sean Taylor who was just amazing and made us laugh so much trying to speak very bad spanish with us. But Sean knows Brixton so so well and we were so amazed of this area of the city which is so surprising and so energetic and cool. We met some of the people that run some shops and it was great to feel like we were part of Brixton. Muchas gracias por todo!

I am so glad I started my trip with Sean-Taylor

Sean-Taylor Williams was my host. He showed me the city of London while also providing me with the history and interesting facts about each location. In one day, we thoroughly explored Brixton, Soho, Camden and other places. After my tour with Sean-Taylor, I was able to effectively navigate the Underground to go anywhere I needed to go in London. Sean-Taylor is extremely personable and knowledgeable. I am so glad I started my trip with Sean-Taylor, working with Sean-Taylor set the precedent for

Sean-Taylor Williams: A Brixton Highlight

Wife and I spent the better part of the day with Sean-Taylor Williams this past Saturday in Brixton. He brought the place alive, gave us a good sense of its history (official and non-official), and introduced us around to the cast of neighborhood characters who make the place what it is. I cannot recommend the tour more highly. If you are looking for the real thing rather than peering out a tour bus and wondering what the locals think, take this experience. Brixton is a wonderful treasure!
