Guide Requirements for United Kingdom

While the United Kingdom has no laws concerning who can and cannot be a guide, guiding at historical sites and monuments is typically restricted to officially accredited guides.

In England, the Institute of Tourist Guiding trains 'Blue Badge' (National) guides. A second 'Green Badge' certification accredits guides with expertise in specific regions and cities.

In Scotland The Scottish Tourist Guides Association (a similar body ) carries out blue and green badge guide training. report error
