After a selection interview, guides undertake a rigorous and comprehensive training course with final written and practical exams. Only successful results mean registration with the Institute of Tourist Guiding and possession of the coveted Blue Badge. All Britain’s Blue Badge Guides have the same national core knowledge with in-depth local knowledge.
The Blue Badge is internationally recognised and respected by discriminating tour operators who are certain of the guides’ ability to select and present material accurately and interestingly, their punctuality and capability to work in cars, coaches, trains and boats, or on foot – always welcoming individuals and groups to Britain’s unique and varied heritage.
