Tim Goddard, Blue Badge Tourist Guide

About Tim

Friendly, knowledgeable, fun and flexible: the things I’ve heard most over the past 20 years’ experience helping visitors get more out of their stay in Britain. There is something especially pleasing about touring in your own hometown, sharing insights that only a life-long Londoner can bring. The former university lecturer in me particularly enjoys bringing Britain’s diverse history and culture to life.

Here is an excerpt of my appearance on ARTE-TV, documenting the lesser-known heist of the Crown Jewels at Westminster.

Blue Badge Tourist Guides

Blue Badge Tourist Guides are the official, professional tourist guides of the United Kingdom. Established in 1950, the Blue Badge is awarded to fewer than 25 candidates in London each year on successfully completing an 18-month course and passing all dozen exams, making it the UK’s highest guiding qualification with the Institute of Tourist Guiding, the industry’s standard-setting body and mark of quality recognised worldwide. We are the only external guides allowed to take visitors into sites such as the Tower and Westminster Abbey.
