Fabian Watkinson

About this guide: Fabian Watkinson profile photo

Fabian’s twin passions are music and architecture. He is a seasoned tour guide, having devised and led many walks for the Victorian Society and the Twentieth Century Society. He lives in a modernist flat in Camden which he opens every year for Open House London, treating over 1500 people so far to an enthralling tour of his brutalist underground carparks. (He can make any building interesting!) A composer by training, he studied with Olivier Messiaen at the Paris Conservatoire and Alexander Goehr at Leeds University. He also teaches the piano.
