Karen Lansdown

I am a native Londoner with a passion for sharing the less well known and surprising aspects of the city I love.

I am an ex-teacher and was previously a costume designer specialising in historic costume. I am an official City of London Guide and Clerkenwell and Islington Guide. I also guide at St John’s Gate, Clerkenwell, The Charterhouse, Smithfield and The Guildhall Art Gallery in the City of London and am an instructor on the Clerkenwell & Islington Tour Guiding course at Westminster University.
