Stan Harris OBE, your personal guide
Stan Harris’s passion for London and his thirst to soak up its history, stories, architecture and culture goes back to his childhood in East London. Stan’s natural curiosity was augmented by family visits to museums, the theatre and many of London’s great attractions.
This early enthusiasm for London led Stan to start a walking group with friends in North London. Since then Stan has personally led hundreds of people around London and its countryside, creating his own unique style of informing and entertaining his groups on these walks, which he fully intends to bring to London Personally.
A couple of years’ ago Stan began organising walks from his London office, Lyndales, centred around Lynton House in London’s Bloomsbury (hence the Lynton House Walks) and aimed at giving local office workers and business owners some entertainment and respite from their working day by walking around the immediate neighbourhood, gaining some insight into the history of the buildings, and people who worked and inhabited the area. Visit Lynton House Walks here.
Supplementing his personal knowledge and his commitment to making these walks professional, Stan has a library of more than 500 books on London (admittedly only a fraction of the number of books actually published). He undertakes every walk personally and thoroughly beforehand to ensure that all aspects of the walk are covered, such as timings, facilities and refreshments.
Like the best of teachers and public speakers, Stan always aims to make the experience enjoyable and entertaining by inspiring and encouraging others to share his passion for London and will always welcome any contribution from the group. In addition, Stan will help you to get around London and will be happy to share his knowledge on everything from transport and hotels to restaurants, booking theatre tickets and getting to exhibitions.
Stan is a solicitor with more than 30 years’ experience and is a partner in Lyndales solicitors in Bloomsbury. He is a trustee of an East London charity, Community Links, and is married with two grown up daughters and lives in North London. He was awarded the OBE for services to Community Links in 2007.
London Personally wants to help you get the most from your stay in London. Every time Stan leads a group around London it’s a thrill for him. So join him and let his passion for this great City infect you!
