Brian

Brian, a professionally qualified Blue Badge Guide, won the London Tourist Board's Guide of the Year Award in 1994. His career has embraced the law, surveying, catering, dispatch riding and art – and the stage may be beckoning. And if you'd like a completely independent take on Brian's guiding, well, read this Marylebone Journal review of his Old Marylebone walk. Anything else? Yes. Brian's a Black Belt (yes, we're talking Judo). And an artist.
