My most exciting things to do in London
People who viewed Lisa also viewed these hosts
Before moving to London I lived in Japan for 18 years and travelled extensively in Asia, teaching Italian language and culture and studying anthropology. I loved Asia, but I moved to London because it was my dream to live here. I have visited London many times between university and now, the serene atmosphere of the parks in contrast with the urban environment always gets me in a wonderful mood. In London I'm in the museums every week and I love checking out the new exhibitions and trends in the weekend markets. The Victoria and Albert Museum is my favourite one for the extensive collection of Japanese, Korean and Chinese art. Soho is great for vinyls and a coffee, and South Kensington for the art and just strolling around. I'm also a vegetarian, so I’m always on the look-out for the best shops or restaurants for a special recipes, dishes and ideas.

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 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.

London is the greatest city in the world. The pubs, the parks and the people. It's a city of great culture, of great buildings and with history around every corner. I've worked in culture and social impact during my eleven-years in London, so I know about the galleries and events and the people who are making things happen in our great city. I'm particularly keen on getting off the beaten path, and showing people around the wonderful hidden surprises. The huge protest bookshop that has banned phones, the park with the unexpected World War 2 relic, the amazing floating record shop on a canal boat.. I also love to travel independently - I know the tube, but prefer to walk or cycle. See the real city!
