Steve Fallon

A native of Boston, Massachusetts, Steve can’t remember a time when he was not obsessed with travel, other cultures and languages. He lived in Paris as a student, taught English in Poland before the Berlin Wall came a-tumbling down, worked as a journalist for a dozen years in Hong Kong and then moved to Budapest, from where he wrote Lonely Planet's first guidebooks to Hungary and Slovenia. Steve moved to London in the mid-1990s and has written or contributed to almost 100 guidebooks, including now six editions of Lonely Planet’s guide to London. He is a dual US-Ireland national, but London is home and Steve's extensive travel experience and knowledge gained from decades of writing guidebooks makes him the perfect escort for London and destinations farther afield in the UK and abroad. Who knows their city better than a guidebook author? From big-ticket attractions like the British Museum, Westminster Abbey and London Eye - and all the stories and personalities behind them - to the back streets of East London and Hoxton/Spitalfields after dark, Steve will introduce you to a city that even Londoners don’t know.

    Où séjourner à Londres - Un guide informé des quartiers de Londres

    Trouver l'hébergement qui vous convient le mieux fait partie de votre expérience londonienne, et le choix est immense. Mais ce n'est pas parce que Londres est une ville qui ne dort jamais que l’on ne s’y repose pas : les hôtels très appréciés affichent très souvent complet. Il y a des hôtels fantastiques - à tous les prix - mais il faut toujours réserver en avance.

    The View from My Front Door: Open Sesame

    It’s time. Slowly and with resolve, I close my bedroom window upstairs and walk down the steps into the hallway. It’s been a while. I open the front door. The world is at my feet. But like so many around me and around the world, I look to the left and to the right and I wonder: Is this what I want? In almost four months I’ve seen acts of human kindness positively overflowing, enough to fill that half-empty glass many times over.

    The View from My Window: My Old Man (Part 2)

    I’m looking out the window to the street below. One of those annoying yappy dogs is dragging its owner on an exceptionally long leash.

I jump and turn but see no one. But I know who is speaking.
