What is a Blue Badge Tour Guide?

A Blue Badge Tour Guide represents the top professional guiding qualification in the UK. We spend eighteen months studying everything from British history and architecture to fashion and street art. After ten exams, both written and practical, our brains are bursting with knowledge with which to entertain and regale our clients (you guys!).

Blue Badge Guides are the only external guides permitted to take groups into certain sites, such as the Tower of London, Westminster Abbey, and St. Paul’s Cathedral. In addition, we are all accredited Windsor guides so we are allowed to take groups inside the grounds of Windsor Castle.

We pride ourselves on our professionalism and quality, and we have chosen this career because we love what we do. We love London and we hope to share that passion with you on our tours.

All of us are members of The Institute of Tourist Guides (who award our qualification), as well as The Association of Professional British Tourist Guides and The British Guild of Tourist Guides – professional bodies who ensure that we are maintaining top standards and keep us up-to-date with any changes to guiding regulations or practices which we need to know about.
We also all carry full public liability insurance, so you can be assured of not only an entertaining tour, but also a safe one!

With a Blue Badge Guide, you are guaranteed an excellent experience.
