Guide London

Statement on Coronavirus (COVID-19)

London’s Blue Badge Tourist Guides, members of Guide London/Association of Professional Tourist Guides are acting in the best interests of visitors and locals alike by restricting our work in line with the latest advice from Public Health England. Furthermore, most tourist attractions, including museums and galleries and many pubs and restaurants, are closed. This is because the UK government has advised against all inessential travel as they work to contain COVID-19 and minimise community spread.

To stay up to date on the latest travel advice for the United Kingdom, visit the UK Government website which is being regularly updated. From a health perspective, we recommend seeking guidance from Public Health England and the World Health Organization.

If you are currently in London and have concerns about the impact of the coronavirus outbreak on your existing travel plans, please check with your airline, tour operator, cruise line or other transport and accommodation providers as applicable. Individual providers may also have their requirements for customers or passengers to meet.

That said, it is essential in these atypical times for us all to stay safe, calm and positive. We are optimistic that through collective effort, travel will once again resume allowing visitors the opportunity to discover and experience all of the fantastic places in London. So please continue to explore our website, which is packed full of fun facts and ideas for experiencing London and beyond.

We look forward to welcoming you back and sharing London’s thrilling stories, pageantry and sights just as soon as we can.
