Elly Stancliffe


Founded by Elly Stancliffe when she was just 23, The Handbook’s mission is clear: ‘to offer the best of London.’ Her collection of guides covers everything from the best rooftop terraces to West End plays and summer festivals. In her previous role as an events manager, Stancliffe saw the gap in the market: though much was happening in the venues and events world, it was difficult to market online to the public and get the right people to show up, she explains. ‘There was very much a need for a resource that allowed users to get the low-down on the best of London.’ The firm recently launched The Handbook PRO, connecting celebrities to brands, venues, and even other A-listers.
