Matt Brown, author and editor of “The Londonist”. His talk is “From The Sewers to the Rooftops: An Explorer’s Guide to London” He has been in some pretty unusual bits of London over the years, from scaling the roof of St Pancras station and the Royal Albert Hall, to venturing into the sewers beneath the City and some secret catacombs below Camden Market (in a canoe!).
