Laura Porter has lived in the London area all her life and can't imagine ever wanting to live elsewhere. London is her 'specialist subject' and she has written the About.com London Travel site since it started in 2006.
This site was included in the "Top 50 Travel Websites" in The Independent where Laura was described as a "mastermind" as "she has a knack for seeking out the unusual as well as providing plenty of practical tips".
The About.com London Travel site will help you plan a trip or enjoy armchair travel. It includes luxury and budget, the top attractions and the little known quirks that made the city so special.
Laura Porter contributes to many other publications while sustaining an afternoon tea addiction to rival that of our Queen.
Laura is also one of the founding writers of the VisitBritain Super Blog where she offers more insights to London and beyond.
Even before starting on this site, Laura had over 10 years prior publishing experience, including doing research for Dorling Kindersley travel guides and maintaining another large publisher's international intranet. She is a qualified ESOL Teacher and has many years experience teaching English in London.
