Tess P.

Kirkby Lonsdale, Cumbria, United Kingdom

Hello! My name is Tess and I am passionate about sharing my love of the North of England with visitors from all over the world.

I qualified as a Blue Badge Tourist Guide in 1995 and since then I have been leading walking tours, coach tours and bespoke private tours in Cumbria, the Lake District, Liverpool and Yorkshire.

As an experienced guide, I enjoy designing itineraries and tailor-made tours for my visitors, catering for their specific interests and every need, whilst also including unexpected hidden gems and places that they would never find without a guide.
