DIANE IN ACTION ON BANKSIDE, LONDON
WHAT IS A Blue Badge Tourist Guide?
The Blue Badge is the UK's highest guiding qualification. No one knows London better than a Blue Badge and no one has the access that we have to places like the Tower of London and Windsor Castle. We're passionate about what we do and we believe no one does it better. For the real deal, make sure you book a Blue Badge.
I fell in love with this amazing city over thirty years ago. Today I’m proud to call myself a Londoner and even prouder to be a qualified London Blue Badge guide who can help make your stay in London as unique and unforgettable as this great city itself.
I’ll bring the picture postcards to life. At the Tower of London, we’ll walk through 1000 years of royal history, uncovering dark stories of treachery, murder and execution. At Westminster Abbey we’ll see the spots where kings and queens are crowned, married and buried.
If museums and galleries are your thing, I’ll take you straight to the highlights of the vast British Museum Collection and the star attractions of the National Gallery or Tate Modern.
Love to stray off the beaten track? So do I. How about a walk in the old City to discover hidden courtyards and alleyways most Londoners have never seen? Or discover one of London's unique neighbourhoods like Bloomsbury, Spitalfields or Marylebone - all with their own fascinating stories to explore.
History especially royalty. Shakespeare, Dickens and literary London. Markets. Pubs and afternoon tea. And seeking out London’s hidden gems.
