Jason A.

London, United Kingdom

A native Londoner who is yet to tire of this huge, happening, historical city.

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 a foodie heaven, and as a writer, I take a huge amount of inspiration from what poet William Blake felt was a breathing, living legend as old as time.

I've been a guide for over ten years, and am also an author. Part of my fascination with London is the amount 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!

A Recent Review of this guide

Jason is knowledgeable yet relaxed and engaging without being overbearing. I think his tours are perfect if you want to ensure you'll walk away with a lasting sense of the core history and current soul of a particular London neighborhood. I especially recommend Jason's tour of Hampstead and Highgate, because he lives in Highgate.
