About your host

I'm a writer, tour guide and Londoner. I love to walk through London, and talk about and be inspired by its artistic heroes. Dickens, for example, a child labourer from an impoverished family who went on to write world famous books that inspired the reform of Britain's child labour laws. Heroic stuff!

You’ll see a variety of literary landmarks ranging from the home of Charles Dickens to the home of Virginia Woolf. Other artists covered include Peter Pan creator JM Barrie, Frankenstein creator Mary Shelley, the founder of Post-Impressionism…
