About us

family at Aubterre sur Dronne

I’m Nell, travel writer and editor. I live in London with the Daddy D and the Pigeons: Austin (10) and Gwen (7). The Pigeon Pair and Me is an online magazine packed full of family travel inspiration, tips and recommendations on things to do in London.

My background is in publishing, communications and public policy. I hold an MSc in Media and Communications from the London School of Economics, and a BA (Hons) in English and Philosophy from Bristol University. You’ll occasionally find me giving a guest lecture on blogging and social media.

The Pigeon Pair and Me is listed as one of Vuelio’s top 10 UK family travel blogs for 2016, 2017, 2018 and 2019, and was shortlisted in the 2016, 2018 and 2019 BritMums Brilliance in Blogging Awards.

Nell, Gwen Austin and D aren’t our real names; I’ve created alter egos to avoid embarrassing the kids when they’re older. But, if you bribe me with good cheese, I’ll give you a hint about our real identities….

(and any PR can get full bio details, of course).

If you’d like to hear more from us, follow me on TwitterInstagram Pinterest, and Facebook. Contact me at for a media pack, or if you have any other queries. You can read more on my work with me page.
