Local

An American expat in London for over 15 years. My favorite bits of London are north of the river. I'm a DJ, fashion designer, blogger, filmmaker, cat sitter, tour guide...a bit of a Renaissance woman. So obviously, I love music, fashion, movies, TV, cats, history, culture and pop culture.

Amazingly fun and interesting experience
for Alison’s tour (Rock 'n' Roll Camden Walking Tour)
It's great as you will visit the venues that saw many important British bands emerge. You will hit pubs where many of these artists hung out, hear interesting stories and have a sip of great beers too of course! Our tour guide Alice told us such great stories and she was super fun! If ur into britpop I totally recommend this tour, you will have a blast

Why are you reading this? Go already!
for Alison’s tour (Rock 'n' Roll Camden Walking Tour)
Alison is a great tour guide with tons of information and first hand stories. I know the tour only scratched the surface. She is fun and passionate about music and Camden, which makes for a great tour. It was worth every penny (pence)!
In addition to visiting some great historical music spots, you get to walk around Camden, which is hands down my favourite area of London!
So stop reading already and book it!

Great way to spend an evening
for Alison’s tour (Rock 'n' Roll Camden Walking Tour)
We had a wonderful Friday evening being shown around Camden by Alison. She knows a lot of the old and new stories about the area and it wasn't all about bands from the 1990s. We saw a lot of the venues, walked through some interesting areas, learned about the pubs. She knew the history from the 1920s to the present and the happenings in the 1960s through 1980s as well. She really brought it to life and it was a great way to see the area.
