A Londoner for thirty years Sean Patterson trained as an actor at RADA and has an MA in London Studies from Queen Mary University. He is a qualified City of London, Westminster, and Clerkenwell and Islington guide. His aim is always for walks to be fun and informative.
His work has been widely reviewed and he has appeared on the BBC TV on Michael Portillo’s Great British Railways program and Antique Roadshow Heirlooms as well as delivering lectures at the Royal Geographic Society.
Sean specialises in Charles Booth’s Poverty Maps and in literary walks that use his acting skills for readings.
The combination of History, geography and literature make Charles Booth Walks ideal for students and Sean has worked with British, American and Danish universities as well as businesses specialising in presentation skills, particularly the prestigious Impact Factory.
Increasingly Sean finds himself leading GCSE students around Whitechapel as the current exam boards deal with the East End in the Victorian period.
He is always happy to create individual walks for groups, educational establishments and businesses. An interactive walk makes a great team building experience!
Sean is a member of London’s premier walking tour co-op Footprints Of London.
