Holly

My name is Holly and I'm a 24 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.

Best experience ever! Beyond words! Highly recommended!

We had a wonderful and so much educational day with Holly our guide. What we really, really liked that the tour was so personalised. We shared our thoughts and interest with Holly and she suggested a lot of things to do and see and ´tailormade' the tour in a way for us. She was really nice and enthusiastic and had so much interest for us. We will definitely use CityUnscripted for our future sightseeing tours. Thanks so much for this wonderful day. :)
