Ian McD - Qualified City of London Tour Guide & Lecturer
Ian McDowell is a qualified City of London tour guide specialising in crazy-but-true facts and secret locations. At University Ian acted with comedian and Spitting Image writer Andy Parsons, and founded a Ghost Club dedicated to touring haunted houses in a vintage car.
A writer and broadcaster for BBC Radio 4, BBC World Service and The Londonist, Ian's tours include a Damsels in Distress Tour, an All You Want To Know About The Middle Ages But Were Afraid To Ask Tour, plus his celebrated and carefully researched Tour Of Places That Have Never Been Harry Potter Locations.
Apart from cocktails, Ian likes nothing more than relaxing with a good book. He lives less than a quarter of a mile from the dome of St Paul's Cathedral, which proves that dome is where the heart is. Ian's tours may contain nuts.
