Heart of England
Hello, my name is Mary Moore and I am a professional Blue Badge Tourist Guide in the Heart of England. My special interest is Birmingham including the Canals and the Jewellery Quarter. I can join your coach and take you on a tour or we could take a walking tour where you will learn more about how Birmingham became the City of 100 trades.
Staying in the area? let me take you to Stratford on Avon, visiting the Houses where William Shakespeare lived and worked with his family. We could include a visit to the Holy Trinity Church where William was baptised and is buried along with some members of his family. If you have time we could include a visit to nearby Warwick and its Castle?
A tour of the Cotswolds is always a treat, visiting the pretty towns and villages, castles and churches, not to mention the beautiful gardens whilst hearing about life in the countryside, its traditions and historic events.
Join me on a walking tour in oxford, the City of Dreaming Spires. Why not combine this with a visit to Blenheim Palace or maybe a visit to Bicester Shopping Village.
Other services I can offer are: Living close to Birmingham Airport I can offer an Airport and Hotel transfer/ Meet and Greet service. Familiarisation Tours for Relocation to the area for Companies and Journalists. Advice on planning your itinerary. I am also an experienced Tour Manager.
