Dawn Blee England
Professional tour guide in England
Guide of the Year 2011 awarded by Institute of Tourist Guiding.
I am a professional Blue Badge Tourist Guide working within London and the beautiful South East of England.
I have lived here all my life, with just enough time spent working abroad to appreciate England and what delights visitors from ...(read more)overseas.
I devise customised tours especially for you to see the iconic favourites and the hidden gems not on the typical tourist trail.
History of London, royalty, castles, countryside, coastlines & cathedrals. South East England has so much to offer - Windsor Castle, Hampton Court, Hever Castle, Kent-the garden of England, White Cliffs of Dover, Brighton, Canterbury Cathedral and so much more...
My perfect day
is spent at Hever Castle in Kent England. A beautiful 'chocolate box' castle to explore, wonderful gardens to admire, medieval jousting to cheer at, mazes to lose the kids in and an afternoon cream tea for all. Stroll home past a late afternoon cricket match on the village green and stop for a pint or two in the local pub - England at her best!
I have traveled to
USA, Thailand, France, Germany, Italy,Spain, Morocco, Turkey, The Gambia, Senegal, Holland, Czech Republic, Russia
English mother tongue, working knowledge of French.I have close colleagues working in Italian, German, Dutch & French whom I can contact for you.
Visit Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II's favourite country home - the largest & oldest castle in England has seen many monarchs living here and has many stories to tell from almost 1,000 years of its history. See St George's chapel, the spiritual home of the Most Noble Order of the Garter. Easy to reach from London Heathrow or London Gatwick airports and Central London.
Visit the spectacular Canterbury Cathedral; seat of Christianity in England. Walk with a professional guide around the ancient city to discover the ancient ruins of St Augustine's Abbey and St Martin's Church which make up this UNESCO World Heritage site. Canterbury is within easy reach of Dover, motorway and rail access from London.
Select the castles you would like to visit from amongst King Henry's favourites. Hever Castle - home of Anne Boleyn, Knole - the calendar house, Penshurst Place - a favourite for hunting, Hampton Court - a palace fit for an archbishop, or a king? So many to chose from, take your pick and I will devise the best tour to suit you.
