I’m Amber, and I look forward to meeting you!
I love London and I love history. I’m a qualified London Blue Badge Guide (who cares?) which means I am accredited with the top Tourist Guiding qualification in the UK.
London is brimming with fantastic stories. If you’re keen to delve a little bit into this wonderful city’s history, spanning 2,000 years from Roman Londinium to the 21st century, have a look at the ‘London Tours’ tab in my menu to see what I can offer you.
In addition, I now host Virtual Tours < check the page to find out more!
As a London Blue Badge Guide, I’m also qualified to guide in certain parts of South East England and you’ll find those tours under the ‘Out of London’ tab.
This page started as a general travel blog and a way of recording my Australian adventures (see the start of it all here), but I quickly caught a serious case of the Wanderlust, to the extent that I now travel for my job. You can find all of those old blog posts in the ‘All over the World’ section of my menu.
Why choose a Blue Badge Guide?
The Blue Badge is synonymous with quality and with outstanding professionalism. It is the highest Tourist Guiding qualification in the UK.
Blue Badge Guides specialise in different areas of the UK and we spend eighteen (intense!) months studying, practising, and taking exams, so that when we get back out into the world of tourism we are at the absolute top of our game!
Blue Badge Guides are the only external guides permitted to take groups into certain exceptional sites, such as Westminster Abbey, the Tower of London, and St. Paul’s Cathedral.
With a Blue Badge Guide, you are guaranteed an excellent experience.
I also dabble in cartoon strips with my Blue Badger friend, Millie! Below you’ll find my latest cartoon, but you can find them all here!
