Heart of England
Hello. As a Blue Badge guide I enjoy showing visitors around the famous sites of this region, such as Shakespeare's Stratford, Regency Bath and Cheltenham, the Cathedral cities of Gloucester and Worcester and the beautiful countryside in between. I regularly take families and groups to visit the Cotswolds and learn what makes the area so renowned. I love sharing my enthusiasm for the history, the wildlife and the artistic heritage of this part of England.
An Oxford resident and Green Badge guide I've been welcoming people to the city of dreaming spires for the last three years. I’ve found that exploring the University at a relaxed pace allows everyone to soak up the atmosphere of the famous colleges and gardens, while learning about the traditions, and the fascinating stories of students and fellows, past and present. In Oxford I offer specialist tours such as the literary world of CS Lewis and JRR Tolkien, and the history of science and medicine at the University. I take many student groups but also families, societies, and prospective students. I enjoy tailoring a tour for the needs of my clients, and usually include a recommendation for the best taverns or restaurants for refreshment afterwards!
