The London x London Team

Julianna Barnaby

Julianna Barnaby

Julianna Barnaby is the Founder of London x London. A born and bred Londoner and award-winning blogger she loves to delve into the cool, interesting and quirky spots that make London such a dynamic city. 

Alastair Reid Schanche

Alastair is a Features Writer at London X London. He joined the team in late 2022 hot off the back of a five-year stint in Shanghai where he wrote for Time Out and ran a very niche blog about Chinese food. 

He’s unable to shake his addiction for Sichuan noodles, but will be found devouring London’s other glorious cuisines when he’s not warming seats at the Prince Charles. 

Lauren Kendrick

Lauren Kendrick is the Features Editor for London x London. She grew up outside of the capital but has spent the last couple of years exploring all there is to know about London and compiling handy guides for you to read – mainly the best places to eat (and there are MANY). 

You’ll likely find her in a cool new bar sipping a cocktail or two. A spicy margarita is her poison of choice, in case you were wondering.

Joe Tapper

Joe is Partnerships Manager at London x London. He spent his childhood in South West Devon, a stone’s throw away from the beautiful coast, and moved to London in 2017 to attend Italia Conti.

His favourite indoor London spot is inside a theatre (don’t make him choose one). Outdoors he enjoys London at night, especially impressing his friends by pointing out the chewing gum art on Millennium Bridge.
