About the Author

ianBaby.jpgThank you for reading Londonunveiled.com.  As author, creator and blogger for this website, I thought a little background may be of interest.  I was born in Exeter, Devon.  Shortly after this my family moved to Edale, Derbyshire at the start of the Pennine Way.  My family lived in Derbyshire for many years.

brocksford days

I attended Brocksford Hall Prep School in Doveridge as a boarder.  I then went to Dean Close (Senior) School in Cheltenham.  Even in those days I loved travelling - going by train on my own between school and home.

For University, I went to the University of California in San Diego - a wonderful location - where I received a B.A.  I obtained my Masters degree from the University of Leicester.

Today I enjoy travelling the world with my wife and two children.  But despite having been to many world cities, London is where the heart is.  This is why I choose to write this blog - to help visitors get the most out of this city.

Most of my time is spent between London, Norfolk and Los Angeles.   Aside from writing this blog and travelling, I enjoy foodie things, wine, reading and collecting first editions, sports cars and football.  Proud supporter of Norwich City FC, I also support a couple of London clubs - Millwall and QPR.

    • Ok, now I understand, this is solely about London, that’s fine also! :-) London ist that far from Norfolk…
