Rachel Erdos is a British freelance writer and editor based in south London. She first moved to the city in 2003 and has been on a mission to track down its coziest pubs, coolest gig venues, fanciest afternoon tea spots and best restaurants ever since. She is just as enamored by London's blockbuster sights as its historic backstreets and loves nothing more than providing insider tips and itineraries to friends and family.
Rachel has written travel articles for a variety of publications including the Guardian, Visit Britain, Four Seasons Magazine and Travelzoo, and most recently held the position of Senior Editor at Jetsetter, where she regularly wrote features about London, the UK and luxury hotels. She has been on the judging panel for the Guardian Travel Awards, International Traveller’s 100 Best Hotels and Resorts and Jetsetter’s Best of the Best Awards.
London can seem a little overwhelming to the first-time visitor but it never fails to thrill and inspire. Home to world-class museums (many of which are free to visit), trend-setting restaurants, stellar shops and a thriving cultural scene, it's one of the world's most visited cities for good reason. Rachel has written about destinations across the globe and has visited 35+ countries, but she truly believes London is the greatest city on earth and feels lucky to be able to share its best bits with you.
Rachel has a B.A. in Tourism Management from Sheffield Hallam University and a Professional Training Certificate in Sub Editing from the London College of Communication.
