Welcome to Guidelines to Britain

Guidelines to Britain is a leading provider of extraordinary guides and tours in England. We are based in London and have curated an extraordinary and diverse team of exceptional guides. A Guidelines Guide is not just an expert; they are engaging, adaptable, and entertaining.

We offer a diverse array of London tours ranging from the common to the very off-the-beaten-track. Many of our Guides are also experts on the English Countryside, and we happily personalize itineraries to the castles, villages, gardens, and historic sites that make the areas outside of London so worth a visit.

Meet the Team

For over 30 years, Guidelines to Britain has delighted clients by providing private sightseeing tours and experiences for individuals and small groups. Our team of guides is the best in the business, and before becoming a Guidelines Guide, they must pass a thorough vetting process. They are selected for their knowledge, experience, and personality.

While all of our guides are experts, they are exceedingly diverse! This gives us the fun job of pairing the right guide to the right client based on areas of expertise, special interest, and style.
