My name is Ludmilla Wilson. I’m a Blue Badge Guide - the highest guiding qualification in the UK. I have a full public liability insurance as a Member of British Guild of Tourist Guides. I am one of the few guide who is permitted to guide inside the Houses of Parliament.I grew up in Tallinn, Estonia. Received Linguistic Education in Minsk and Moscow.
I have been guiding in London and the UK since 1993 and through my extensive and varied work gained experience and knowledge. I’m passionate in my quest to acquire even more to pass on to my guests. I would love them to fall in love with London the same way I did.
London is an exciting place: cosmopolitan, ancient and modern, vibrant, active and welcoming to people of all ages.
