Adrian

I am an experienced tour guide, artist and designer, with a passion for London. I was born and brought up here in London, which is the most vibrant mix of old and new. It has three thousand years of history, yet is always re-inventing itself. So it remains the most contemporary and cosmopolitan in the world, brim full of art, design, architecture, theatre and music. My interests are mostly based around, and my background is largely in; the Arts. Particularly fine art, pop art, graphic art, street art and architecture. I have a university BA Hons degree in Art and Visual Communication and I am also a designer and artist. There are many human stories to tell, behind London, behind it's history and behind it's art.

My most exciting things to do in London

I would be great for those who would like to discover art, design, and the history of London. I am your perfect host when it comes to exploring the street art of Shoreditch, the streets of Central London, finding little corners and secret spots among the tourist buzz and for private tours of the British museum and the Tate Modern.

Great Experience!

I met Adrian in Westminster, and we wandered all the way to Covent Garden (definitely my favourite area of London). Westminster was super busy, and I really do not like crowded spaces. However, Adrian kept us entertained and took us to spots that were much less crowded, so that he could stop and tell us more about all the buildings that were around us.

Very good alternative to a standard London tour.

Adrian was a very nice man. A gentle soul and we enjoyed his company.

East London seen through the eyes of a real Londoner

Adrian gave me a very special, very interesting and very enjoyable introduction into the multi-faceted and changing East London. Highly recommended!
