My name is Luke Scoging and i have been a tour guide based in Bath for two years now.
A Bath boy born and bred, I was often taken to the Roman Baths, which inspired my love of history (especially Ancient and pre-historic), and led to me doing a degree in Ancient History.
I got a job at the Roman Baths after graduating and that is where i discovered my love of telling these stories. I firmly believe tour guiding is about finding fun and unusaul stories about the past- that's what makes travel and discovery interesting after all. I love what i do, and hope you will too.
I operate all over the South West, and am happy to take on any subject or location. The South West is lucky to have so many ancient sites such as Bath, Exeter, Cirencester, Stonehenge, Avebury and others, but i also love the medieval architecture of Salisbury, the Georgian elegance of Bath or the Victorian power of Bristol- i genuinely find it all fascinating
Do note that i do not currently have a valid driving license

|History & Prehistory||
From the great Roman cities of Bath, Cirencester, Gloucester adn Exeter, to the villas of Chedworth and the Cotswolds, to the prehistoric hillforts, tombs and sacred sites of Wiltshire and Dorset, I love it all!
|Churches & Cathedrals||
I truly believe that Salisbury Cathedral is one of the most beautiful buildings in England, but Exeter, Wells, Bristol and Gloucester run it close. Not to mention the smaller churches of the Cotswolds, or undiscovered gems like Bradford-on-Avon
The South West has many fine museums. A personal favourite is the prehistoric museum in Devizes, but Exeter, Bath and Bristol have many fine ones as well- and in the winter it can me nice to have an inside option!
|Castles & Palaces||
Ever since i was a child, i was enraptured by castles. From the stately elegance of Nunney, to the romance of Corfe and the multifaceted Farleigh Hungerford, we have a wide selection to offer. We're not to far from Blenheim Palace either- which is absolutely mad in an amazing way!
I love a walking tour. Getting out amongst it all- brilliant! Living in Bath, it's the best way to see the city, but I have done walking tours of Cirencester, Exeter, Salisbury, Wells and Bristol and loved them too.
From Prehistoric Wiltshire to the Cotswolds, to the spas of Bath and Cheltenham, or the natural tours of Exmoor or Dartmoor, it's the best (and often only!) way to do it- helping you cram so much history into a doable timescale, and making it comfortable too!
