Centuries-old pubs bare stories of great characters, artists and revolutionaries, 2000-year-old Roman ruins jut out of the ground, yet London is no museum piece. Quirky glass and steel architecture is popping up all over the city, it's foodie heaven, and as a writer, I take a huge amount of inspiration from what poet William Blake felt was a living, breathing legend as old as time.
I've been a guide for fifteen years and am also an author. Part of my fascination with London is the number of wonderful artists who have taken inspiration from the city over the years, from Blake to Dickens to Bram Stoker to Shakespeare.
I empathize with travelers because I'm a keen traveler myself and always hire a guide in a foreign place to discover its secrets, learn its history, and hopefully be entertained! In turn, I pride myself on revealing the real London, avoiding the crowded tourist traps and offering a way to get to know the capital's famous districts more intimately.
I'm a fun and friendly guide, if I may say so myself. I especially like to show people around who've never been to London before, to be able to see the city anew through their eyes.
I look forward to meeting you and showing you around!

Had a really good time with Jason. He was on time, and we learned quite a bit of Rock history. Would definitely recommend him if you want to see a different London.
