Welcome!

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.

A bit more on me in About | Contact, but for starters, I’d like to welcome you to Rambling London Tours!

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.

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.

Unsurprisingly, I enjoy writing about London too. You’ll find my latest blog posts below. Otherwise, take a gander at London Blog Posts! Enjoy!

This page started as a general travel blog and a way to record 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 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.

Memoirs of a Blue Badge Guide

This is a very special blog post to me. In March, I qualified as a Blue Badge tour guide, and I am proud to be following in my Grandma’s footsteps. She has been a Blue Badge Guide since 1972! I decided to use all my extra lockdown time to interview her and hear some of her guiding stories. … More Memoirs of a Blue Badge Guide

When England went Bananas

On 10th April 1633, the earliest recorded bananas went on sale in England, in an apothecary on Snow Hill in London.
I’ve read more about bananas in the last 24 hours than I have in my entire life, but it was completely worth it – a bit of creative writing, a bit of fascinating history! … More When England went Bananas
