An expat from Luxembourg, Yannick is an independent London tour guide and the founder of London Unravelled. With five years of guiding experience, he can often be found exploring his adopted hometown and developing new tours.
From Knightsbridge to Mayfair, London has become the canvas for Yannick's walks. His popular 'Art Deco in Bloomsbury' tour was launched during the Bloomsbury Festival 2013 and he's currently working on a follow-up set in the West End. From telephone boxes to secret gardens, his quirky walks seek out the unexpected and have been featured on the Londonphile, Last Minute as well as other London blogs.
Volunteering at the British Museum since 2009, Yannick has been facilitating object handling as well as delivering tours ever since, including the Japan eyeOpener Tour and the Highlights Tour. His team-building efforts have been highly commended in the Renaissance London Volunteers Awards 2011, in the category 'Going the Extra Mile'.

‘Bloomsbury might be renowned for its iconic Georgian buildings, but it’s also a hotbed for Art Deco architecture, an international design movement that bloomed between the 1920s and 1930s. Deservedly so, there is a walking tour entirely dedicated to Bloomsbury’s Art Deco buildings. Starting at Russell Square, ‘Art Deco in Bloomsbury’ explores the area’s design heritage[.]’ – @StoreStreetWC1

‘As I am increasingly learning on Yannick’s food tours, you take home a lot more than calories, as you are almost guaranteed to step back on the underground wondering how on earth you could have walked these streets so many times over the years without even a morsel of the knowledge that he seems to possess about them. […] And, as a signature aspect of Yannick’s tours, we were led to undiscovered corners of the city that prove estuaries of calm exist even in the core of a heaving metropolis.’ – @WWannualleave

‘Just the title of the tour makes your mouth water, doesn’t it? Well I’m not going to disappoint you, I have photos that will make your mouth water too. […] Having lived west of London most of my life, I was not prepared to be taken on a hidden tour where I hadn’t been anywhere! […] I cannot recommend it highly enough, and certain to be heading out on another tour – whose coming?’ – @londonwhispers
