Hi there! My name is Alan, and I'm a local host in the incredible city of London. I'm a real people person - humorous, friendly, mature, polite, and easygoing. And what I love most about London is how it truly is a melting pot of all walks of life. There's always something new to discover! When I'm not hosting, I love exploring the rich history of this amazing city. From Westminster to Soho, Borough to Kings Cross, and Spitalfields, I know these neighborhoods inside and out. And as a fifteenth-generation Londoner, I have a wealth of knowledge about the city that many people don't know. Plus, I have a special connection to London's literary history - my six-greats aunt was none other than Mary Shelley, author of Frankenstein. I'm also an expert on the music history of London and love going to gigs to discover new and exciting talent. And, of course, I'm a foodie at heart and love trying out new restaurants, from fine dining to street food. Let's explore this amazing city together and have some fun!
