About me... Ambleside Alison

Blue Badge Tourist Guide Hello, I'm Alison, a local Blue Badge Guide who lives in Ambleside, the heart of the Lake District.

Ambleside, Windermere, Grasmere, Hawkshead and Coniston are on my doorstep and I love showing people the area I call home. I specialise in sustainable tours and know the best scenic routes around our narrow lanes and authentic experiences for various sizes of group. I deliver knowledgeable and engaging commentaries which bring the area alive for visitors, using facts and legends. I also know where all the great photo opportunities and cake stops are!

I work with tour companies and directly with individuals to create authentic, unique and memorable experiences. Experienced working alongside chauffeurs, or stepping on a coach or minibus to guide you around the Lake District.

Many of my tours are available all year round, so whether its a couple of hours, a half day, full day or multi-day tour, I deliver experiences customised to the interests and demographic of the group.

I love taking photographs and I hope you enjoy looking at all the photos on this website. Why not follow my instagram page for more gorgeous or interesting photos of the Cumbria and the English Lake District. https://www.instagram.com/amblesidealison/

In my spare time I enjoy writing and on my Lakeland Days Out page you can scroll down to read my blogs, bringing you fascinating information and telling you more about myself and what interests me.

Let me arrange your tour and you will be in the right place to see many of these locations yourself!

Book a tour with me and be assured you will be hiring a professional and friendly tourist guide who lives in the heart of the Lake District with extensive local knowledge.

Be excited you are taking the next step to making a good experience a great one!
