Welcome and thank you for visiting my site! I’m Rob. I am a published author, award winning blogger, qualified London tour guide, and all over enthusiast about the city.
London is my home, the place where I was born and raised. I have been writing about it and taking others around its places, secrets, history, and top spots for many years. It is my pleasure to share it with you!
I am a published author and I write extensively about London, the city and it’s history.
I am the author of The Knowledge: Train Your Brain Like a Cabbie, which was published by Quercus in 2018. It features a blend of history, trivia and brain training techniques which were inspired by my own experiences when I was training to be a London black cab driver.
I have contributed to other publications focusing on the people of London and I have written numerous blog and magazine articles. In 2015 Time Out London named me their Expert Blogger of the Year.
Check out my books and portfolio page for examples of my published work.
I have been interviewed by and appeared in a number of major media publications including The Guardian, and National Geographic. I recently co-presented a programme for BBC Radio 4 called What has Satnav Done to Our Brains, in which we explored the effects of modern technology on the brain.
I have also worked with international TV broadcasters including the BBC, France 5, and NHK, Japan’s national broadcaster. For NHK I contributed to a documentary about the artist Francis Bacon, providing expert information about Bacon’s life, haunts and locations during his time living in London.
