If Emily's life were a book, London would be a central character. She moved here from America as a young adult and her enthusiasm only continues to grow - especially after becoming a Blue Badge guide. She thrives on discovering new things and sharing her findings with visitors and residents alike. Emily has lived in central London since 1991, working as a freelance travel writer. (Her articles have been published in The New York Times, The Washington Post, The Independent, The Telegraph, The Guardian and many other publications.) She has a degree in English literature from Wellesley College in the USA but she also studied history at Aberdeen University for one year. Her love of research pushes her to continually probe British history and explore London's links to literature. Her dual nationality equals dual perspective. She still views London with the enthusiasm of a newcomer but she has the added wisdom of a local.
