Blue/Green Badge Guides

We only use Blue or Green Badge Guides on our tours of Britain’s historical heritage sites. The Blue Badge is a symbol of excellence in tourist guiding. Blue Badge Guides are often the ONLY external guides permitted to conduct tours at many attractions, including Westminster Abbey and the Tower of London.

They bring the sites to life, often telling the stories that are not in the guide books or audio tours. With your own knowledgeable and entertaining guide, you can ask questions and find out more about what interests you.
