Des Aherne

Des was born in Walthamstow in North East London and has worked in Camden in the legal heart of London for over a quarter of century, in Gray's Inn and later beside Lincoln's Inn. Walking through Lincoln's Inn one day he thought he would like to show people this fascinating part of London that most Londoners are unaware of, and he trained to become a Camden Tour Guide. He has a great interest and first-hand knowledge of the people, stories & buildings of this ancient center of our legal system, namely the Inns of Court, Royal Courts of Justice and Chancery Lane.

Des also offers fascinating walks around and about the two main rail termini at Kings Cross at St Pancras, an area of Camden that's a real treasure-house of social history, with a recent spectacular renaissance of new buildings for the arts, education, technology, and the creative industries.
