Harriet Gilmour

Blue Badge Tourist Guide for the Liverpool City Region, encompassing Merseyside and Halton.

“ a great guide will help you see the things that are already there, hiding in plain sight”

My name is Harriet Gilmour and I’m a Blue Badge Tourist Guide for the Liverpool City Region. I offer a friendly and knowledgable welcome to this great city which I call Home. An adopted ‘scouser’, I’ve been in the ‘Pool for 20 years and have come to roost where previous generations of my family lived and ran a world travel business, so you could say it’s in my blood!

My background is in Museums and Galleries, working for various cultural institutions in Liverpool such as the Walker Art Gallery, the Museum of Liverpool, Tate Liverpool, DaDaFest and Liverpool Biennial.

I qualified as a Blue Badge Tourist Guide in May 2013 and am enthusiastic about showing off Liverpool and what it has to offer. We’ve got firsts, lasts, greatests, oldests and bests, and we’re very modest too!

I am particularly interested in Liverpool Docks and Waterfront, Liverpool Cathedrals, Art and Public Art, Museums and Galleries, The Beatles, City Walking Tours, Hope Street, Port Sunlight, Historic Buildings, Regeneration, and the History of Slavery.

Enjoy looking at my site for tour ideas, news and details of how to Experience Liverpool.
