Winchester's official tourist guides have been guiding in Winchester for more than 30 years All guides have undergone rigorous training and are accredited by the Institute of Tourist Guiding.
The Green Badge guides are qualified to take tours in Winchester and the surrounding district whereas Blue Badge guides are qualified to guide across a wider area, e.g. Southern England, London or the West Country.
Winchester's official tourist guides work closely with Winchester Tourism to provide guiding services in Winchester and area.
Common to all guides is a genuine enthusiasm for their City and the desire to bring it alive for both visitors and residents alike.
Winchester Tourist Guides are particularly grateful for the sponsorship they have received since 2010 from Winchester BID which has enabled them to market both their daily visitor and special themed tours to a wider audience. Its support of the production and distribution of leaflets throughout Hampshire, and the maintenance of this website, has so far generated a significant increase in the number of people joining our tours, to the intended benefit of its members' businesses.
Winchester Tourist Guides also much appreciate the support of the Wessex Mercure Hotel and the popular Winchester restaurant Kyoto Kitchen - in supplying your tour ticket and the printing of monthly posters publicising their Themed Tours throughout Winchester.
