blue badge guide

In March 2018, I qualified as a Blue Badge Guide.

What does that mean?

Established in 1951, The Blue Badge is the highest accreditation of Tourist Guiding. Managed by the Institute of Tourist Guiding the London Blue Badge course is an 18 month (gruelling!) course comprising of 12 exams.

In a nutshell, this means we know our stuff! All Blue Badge Guides have passed written history examinations as well as practical exams in the National Gallery, City of London, British Museum, Tower of London, Westminster Abbey and St Paul’s Cathedral.

We are also the only external guides allowed to take our clients around Westminster Abbey and the Tower of London.
