To celebrate the launch of our new Pocket London guide, we’re offering 15 lucky Instagrammers the chance to join Lonely Planet experts Sally Schafer (@rightsideofcity) and James Smart (@smartbadger) and prominent urban instagrammer @mrwhisper on a bespoke walking tour in London on Saturday 29th March. We’ll give you all our insider tips on where to go in the capital, and some top tips for Instagramming your travels.

Who is Mr Whisper?

Bal Bhatla, better known as @mrwhisper, is a mobile street photographer and has built a reputation by capturing candid photographs of people travelling around London. For the last 6 years, he’s been exploring the possibilities of mobile photography. But it wasn’t until he got his first iPhone in late 2010 that he started to take it seriously. That’s when he joined Instagram – and he hasn’t looked back since. He is considered one of the “top 13 Instagrams to follow if you’re missing London” by Buzzfeed and his images have been shown in various exhibitions around the world and featured in newspapers, magazines and blogs.
