I'm an American expat originally from California, I've been an Anglophile my whole life and moved to London 16 years ago. I will be a certified guide with the Camden Tour Guide Association this summer. I love London and want to share my passion for it with other people. I like going to pubs and drinking craft beer. Checking out new bands at gigs in Camden. Wandering around London and discovering new things, even though I've lived here for so long I still get excited about this city.

The experience

My name is Alison, and I fell in love with Camden over 16 years ago. I moved here as a DJ, and I've since become a certified Camden guide. I've drunk and danced my way through many infamous gigs at Camden's amazing clubs, bars and music venues. I did this with several music artists who I knew personally, including Amy Winehouse.

If you want to explore Camden Town and are curious about its music history, this experience is for you. Together, we'll walk through the sights of Camden's history, which is long and colourful. From Psychedelic to Britpop - all the greats have performed, drank and lived in Camden.

I'll take you to the pubs and venues where many artists made their debut in music. I will tell you plenty of curiosities and secrets - and if I haven't experienced them first-hand, I will personally know someone who has.
