So you’ve got your English pounds, you’ve packed your umbrella and you’ve even brushed up on your cockney rhyming slang so that you can hold your own chatting to the locals in the rub-a-dub (pub).
Now all you need to work out is which pub to go to. And you’ll probably feel peckish after the pub so you’ll need to find somewhere to eat. And you want to fit in some ‘culture’ at some point. Apparently there’s a good exhibition on at the Tate… But what else?
You could get some guidebooks. Read some of those blogs you’ve bookmarked. But things change so quickly in London. New things open every day and how do you know that you haven’t missed any of the best bits?
Well, that’s where we come in. ‘London Laureate’ is the collective guise that we’ve set up together but we are otherwise know as Charles and Ella. Born and Bred in London, together we have spent the last ten years working in the entertainment and fashion industries, with offices based from High Street Kensington to Shoreditch. Hopefully this doesn't sound arrogant, but based on that, we feel like we know this City! Like, really know it!
We love travelling but we’ll do anything to avoid: 1) those rushed hours spent pouring over countless guidebooks trying to plan each moment of a trip efficiently and 2) when the person sat next to you on the trip home tells you about a great restaurant they went to you that you missed.
We can help you avoid these scenarios. We will devise you an itinerary based on your individual interests, requirements and location and personally meet you to show you around some of its highlights. We can even recommend places to stay and suggest the best apps to download in advance of navigating the Tube and working out your pounds from your euros. We will also offer London-insider tips on how to keep your visit budget-friendly.
