After the Covid-19 forced lockdown, Yorkshire tourism is taking its first tentative steps to normality. Many attractions, such as stately homes and gardens, are opening up, and Yorkshire is expected to benefit from a surge in domestic tourism.

Yorkshire Blue Badge Tourist Guides have not been able to guide during lockdown, but now Yorkshire’s best guides who recently became Yorkshire Society members are raring to go.

The Yorkshire Association of Tourist Guides is a network of highly qualified tourist guides with an expertise in all things Yorkshire, as well as excellent general knowledge of the British Isles. Recognised for creating entertaining and engaging tours, the knowledgeable guides have local expert knowledge across a range of interests.

All members of the Yorkshire Association hold the coveted Blue Badge – the highest accreditation in tourist guiding. The Blue badge is a mark of quality and a re-assurance the guides not only know their stuff, but can communicate it in a professional, engaging manner whilst following guiding best practice.

Even for Yorkshire Society Members who live in God’s Own County, a tour whether a walking tour of York or a driver guided tour of the Yorkshire Dales can really help with bringing Yorkshire to life.
