About me

My name is Holly and I'm a 25 year-old actress and musician. Music and theatre are my two main passions and my work takes me to the best dive bars, pub theatres, hidden gems of converted spaces, famous buildings and arenas all over the city. If you want to explore the trendiest neighbourhoods in London and discover the music and artistic scene of the city, from jazz, to rock and opera, I would love to show you around. I know Shoreditch and East London very well and I would be great company on an unscripted walk-around the area.

My most exciting things to do in London

I'm a professional musician so I know a lot about the music scene all around the city. I go to a lot of gigs and know where the best places to see good bands are. I'm also an actress and run a theatre company so I love finding interesting fringe theatres and going to see shows by exciting new theatre companies. A lot of those theatres also have great restaurants and interesting entertainment in the bar. The history of London's creative community is everywhere and even when spaces move or close down, they leave an indelible mark. There are so many spaces to discover, restaurants to try, gigs to attend, jam sessions to rock at, shows to see, streets to walk and pop-ups to catch before they close, there is never a slow day in London.

Hi! My name is Juliet. I've always loved to travel, but when I first came to London, I instantly fell in love with the city, and knew I was going to stay.

Hello! I am a fun and friendly London Local who loves nothing more than showing friends from far and wide the best of this fabulous city! Originally from Durham (an adorable town in the North-East of England), I moved to London over four years ago for my Bachelor's degree. Over these past few years, I have spent many hours wandering the streets and discovering many hidden treasures all over the city; from Notting Hill in the West to Camden in the North (and Covent Garden in the middle!) I love nothing more than strolling through London's beautiful parks, stuffing my face at local food markets and locating fun and quirky things to do in the city. I am full of tips and tricks to help you make the best of your trip; be it veggie friendly cafés and restaurants or the best West End play to see, I am a fountain of local knowledge :D I can't wait to hear from you and to be part of your fabulous London adventure!

I am a Slovak girl who fell in love with London as a teenager. I moved here in 2015 to study communications and development and I currently work in charity communications. I am a passionate traveller and visited over 30 countries. Still, I consider London to be the best city in the world. I came for parties and British humour, stayed for open-minded kind people, food from aroud the world and simply beautiful chocolate-box spots. Sharing London gems with my friends and family when they visit is one of my favourite things to do. So I figured, why not broaden the audience?

I am an Italian drummer who moved to London more than 3 ago to study and graduate in music. I love music, playing in a band (Tarantula), talking about music and going to gigs. I am a funny and positive person, very ambitious and future looking, energetic and smiling. I am a caring, patient and confident young man, at ease with families and children as well as with seniors. Oh, and obviously I love London so you'll love it too!
