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.

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. I like to keep fit and active, by walking and swimming. I like to sing Gaelic songs and now have a wee group to perform with, that is very exciting for me, I could not have imagined that I would be doing this at my age! So, yes it is very nice to be back in the capital of the Highlands!

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.

Hi, my name is Verity, and I am a recent graduate of the University of St Andrews, where I’ve spent the last five years studying history. In that rather tumultuous saga, St Andrews has not only been the backdrop, but a character in its own right – and an interesting one at that. I can’t wait to share its mysteries, quirks, and secrets with you, and expose this town for the wonderfully weird place that it is!

Hello! I was born and raised in a town that 1984 author George Orwell described as the most godforsaken place he ever struck. Now having lived in Inverness since 2015, I enjoy telling some of the lesser known stories behind the landmarks here. Hopefully you'll enjoy hearing them!

emma

I’m a Highland Business Owner born just outside London, so there’s no Scottish accent to contend with!!  I first visited Inverness in 2000 to visit my true Scotsman boyfriend that I had fallen head over heels in love with. I moved here in 2001. So I know what it’s like to be a tourist, what to see, where to go but now I see it from a local point of view too.

jane

stirling

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.

Hello. I'm Pete and was born and bred in Birmingham. Now that I've retired from teaching, I'm able to spend more time telling people about the place of my birth; the city of a thousand trades, with more canals than Venice and more parkland than Paris. Amongst many things on the tour, I'll be telling you about the buildings who have given the city its shape as well as the men and women who have shaped the city.
