See London before you die

I have some friends staying with me and I sent them off yesterday on a tour of the East End of London with my old mate Harry Jackson who is a London Blue Badge guide. He is a specialist in the East End, Brick Lane and Jewish London as well as all the usual sights. If you're coming to London, I highly recommend checking hiom out at his site. My friends have been raving about how good he was.

If you've read Monica Ali's novel, and want to see the real thing, Harry's your man.

The last time my husband and I were in London a couple of years ago, we took a walking tour in Kensington and one in Bath. It was wonderful to have someone who really knew the area telling us the stories and history of the area instead of having us hunched over a guidebook. We won't have as much time in London this time around, but I hope we can get one walking tour in.
