I've been visiting London since I was a boy, but I still remember the thrill of the first time I arrived. A day in London meant a day full of surprises, where something fascinating, beautiful or inspiring could be around the next corner. I always knew I would come and live here, and now I have been in the city for over 25 years. And I still find surprising and new things. My real pleasure is to show people London's special places and share the inspiring stories from people who have lived here, whether long ago or today.

The British Museum is full of beautiful objects from all around the world but how many of them are from London itself? This experience of the British Museum concentrates on objects that were made, found or used in London. From Bronze age shields to Bow pottery, I will show that London-made objects are a match for any in the world.

Can't wait to see you!
