Andrew W.

Southampton, Hampshire, United Kingdom

Hello and welcome to my home page. I am a Blue Badge Tourist Guide, accredited through the Institute of Tourist Guiding in London, and qualified (and insured) to conduct tours of Southern England, including the counties of Hampshire, Dorset, Wiltshire, Berkshire, Oxfordshire and the Isle of Wight.

It is with the greatest pleasure that I invite you to take a tour around southern England.

I am a 'Hampshire Hog', born and bred, and take great pride in showing visitors the New Forest and the jewels hidden within.
Take a stroll around the medieval walls of Southampton. Learn where Henry VIII met Anne Boleyn in secret, and find out why there is a pineapple on top of the roof of the Royal Pier Gatehouse.
Visit Seacity Museum (Southampton) and learn about the most famous ship in human history, the 'Titanic'. Then take a walking tour of Southampton to discover the memorials and buildings that are associated with it.
Make a pilgrimage to Salisbury Cathedral that has the tallest spire in England (123 metres), and possesses one of the four remaining copies of the original 'Magna Carta'; a document that established our legal system.
Discover Winchester, the old capital of England, where Alfred the Great ruled and is home to King Arthur's Round Table.
