Hello, I am Gavin Webb, London Blue Badge Tour Guide. I would be delighted to show you around my wonderful city and some of my favourite day trips from London.
The Blue Badge is the highest qualification awarded by the Institute of Tourist Guiding. It is regional so I am qualified for the whole of London and the day trips from London.
I was awarded “Best Site Guide” in 2005 when I qualified as a London Blue Badge Tour Guide after the extensive study and examinations set by the Institute of Tourist Guiding. As a registered Guide Trainer, I have the privilege of being one of the tutors on the course training others to become professional London guides. I am also an accredited Examiner for the Institute of Tourist Guiding. I enjoy attending seminars, art courses, talking to curators and constantly researching to ensure my knowledge is up to date and fresh.
I have been awarded a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence Hall of Fame based on more than 5 years of 5 star client reviews and I am delighted to have won Luxury Travel Guide’s Tour Guide of the Year London 2018.
I love to share my knowledge and enthusiasm for this amazing city with its 2000 years of history and its exciting, vibrant, contemporary scene. I can tell you about my favourite restaurants, exhibitions and theatre productions and what life is really like living and working in the world’s greatest city.
There are some wonderful places to visit on a day trip from London and so I have included my favourites on this web-site.
Before becoming a professional guide, I worked in asset management in the financial City. The analytical and presentation skills I gained there are now used in the much more interesting and fun world of guiding!
Having travelled to many countries, as well as exploring the British Isles, I appreciate how valuable a tourist’s time is and what makes a trip memorable. From students to VIPs, individuals to groups, contact me to arrange your memorable visit.
