About me

Hello, my name is Laura and as a professional guide I love welcoming people to the north of England. I grew up in the north and have been working in tourism for most of my life, qualifying as a guide over ten years ago

I’m happy working with travel companies and group travel organisers to help plan and deliver tours, and also work with small groups and individuals offering a completely bespoke service,

I welcome enquiries from individuals, small and large groups, school and college groups and tour operators. For a friendly, professional service, please contact me to discuss your needs.

Why don’t you have a look at my tours page for some ideas or inspiration, and if you can’t see exactly what you need, please get in touch and we can work together to create a tour to suit your needs.

I work closely with local transport companies to provide private hire vehicles, and particularly Milburn’s for executive mini bus and chauffeur driven vehicles.

As a fully qualified Blue Badge Tourist Guide, I belong to my professional bodies, the Institute of Tourist Guiding (ITG) and the British Guild of Tourist Guides.

I’m also involved with my local tourist guide group, the North East England Tourist Guides and the Yorkshire Association of Blue Badge Guides and we have a great network of colleagues so if there is something I can’t help you with, I can usually find a friend!
