ABOUT US

Walking Tours in the UK is a small, unique walking tour company built by locals. We're a small company with a big mission; we pride ourselves on giving you the chance to discover the UK's cities and towns through a local's eyes. Our tours are fun, relaxed and show off local hotspots, as well as being informative. Don't miss out on the best tour of your life! ;)

 

Liv and Jenny founded this company after seeing that Glasgow didn't have a walking tour in early 2017. In 2019, they decided to expand the tours to across Scotland so they could show off even more of beautiful Scotland. In 2022, we expanded into England. In each place, all of our guides are guides because they are passionate about the city and they want to share its beauty with you! We hope to see you on one of our tours soon.

james

st andrews

Hi, I am James. What I love about St Andrews, is that I believe the town is akin to a unique whisky or swatch of Harris Tweed. It has within it innumerable strands, patterns, characters and evocative images. I look forward to sharing them with you, in order that St Andrews becomes much more than an Auld Grey Toun on one of our town tours.

susanne
inverness

I was born in the Isle of Skye and moved to Inverness as a small child. I went to primary and secondary school here.  Left at age 15 and have not long returned to live here, to find a very different town, or city rather as it now is. It is much bigger, livelier place than the little quiet market town I left several decades ago. I am really enjoying being back in Inverness and  have a much greater appreciation of its beauty and its long and fascinating history. I love reconnecting with its Gaelic heritage, and am very involved in Gaelic initiatives, trying to keep the language alive and thriving for future generations. So, yes it is very nice to be back in the capital of the Highlands!

Hello, I'm Jane. My interest in history was nurtured in my very early years. Working in and around Stirling for many years, I became immersed in its dramatic history. I encountered villains, heroes and heroines - ordinary people as well as stars of Hollywood Blockbusters. All this is played out in the very compact space of Stirling Old Town. I can't wait to show you the city I love.
