Get ready to discover how London's King's Cross got it's name together with your private host. As you explore the length of Caledonian Road, why not pass by some of the well known night spots? Find out all about London's biggest rock club Scala, Simmons Bar and the gastropub The Driver.

I am an Australian-qualified architect and Urban Researcher. Apart from research, teaching and making music in my spare time, I like to show people around London. I especially like to guide architecture and planning professionals. I find German speakers and anyone with specific interests particularly interesting as my guests."
