Karen

Karen comes trailing clouds of glory. Travel & Leisure crowned her “the world’s greatest tour guide.” She hosts the Canadian television travel show “London Next Stop.” She won the London Tourist Board’s Guide of the Year award. She’s the author of Royal London. She is, quite simply, a star turn – which is why she’s the “go to” London guide for every major media concern. [Interlude: you don’t need to take it from us or Travel & Leisure or Canadian television or the London Tourist Board – you can decide for yourself. Have a listen to this: It’s a Podcast Karen did on London’s oldest and most storied restaurant. Her visit there – her privileged access visit there – is one of the big stops on her Inside Story – Covent Garden Interiors Walk.] A reformed actress and occasional journalist, she was Independent Magazine’s Cultural Heritage Correspondent. Her gold standard walks are, needless to say, vivid and entertaining. So: “World’s greatest tour guide”, CBC star, Guide of the Year – no way she wasn’t going to front the flagship London Walks film!
