Gloucester Civic Trust Committees
Tour Guides Committee
The Tour Guides Committee, under the leadership of Colin Nyland, has provided a valuable service to Gloucester’s visitors for four decades.
We have over 60 volunteer Guides, who are professionally trained and have qualified as Green Badge or Gloucester Civic Trust Badge Tour Guides.
They conduct walking tours around the City daily, except Sundays, from April to September, mostly from St Michael’s Tower with a new programme of tours from The Folk in development. “Behind the Scenes” tours of The Folk are also available Pre-booked tours are also available and include a number on themed subjects. See Guided Walks &Tours for full details.
Our guides offer a quality, personal service showing both local residents and visitors to the City the highlights of Gloucester’s rich history – much of which is tucked away. The walks are easy-going, mostly in pedestrianised areas, with something to appeal to everyone.
We can never have too many Tour Guides as Gloucester has so much to shout about! If you’d like to join us, take a look at our Tour Guide Training Programme.
