What Amanda says about London

Amanda and Lydia both have twinning red hair and a shared love for the capital, however Amanda is an ex-Eastender and Lydia was born south of the river and now never wants to leave. The perfect partnership for dividing and conquering the best city in the world.

With London life coursing through her veins, Amanda passionately covers the capital in all its glory. This is the city of delight and innovation, where you truly can become anything you want to be. As Dr. Samuel Johnson – the man who invented the dictionary – famously said: ‘A man who is tired of London, is tired of life’ and no one feels this more passionately than Amanda. She will take you from cabaret to key insta spots and the best central stays to be had. Restaurants, hotels, experiential trips, nothing is off limits.

Lydia explores all that makes the big smoke come to life from coffee shops to natural wine bars, West End wonders, boutique city staycations and all things kitsch & culture.

So much more than the tourist tales, London has everything to offer and our girls will take you on a journey of discovery and exploration through these streets which may not be paved with gold, but in our eyes, always glitter.
