Becoming a City Guide

If you’ve ever thought “I’d like to do that”, then here’s some things you ought to know.

Every two-three years, we run training courses for people who feel they’ve got what it takes to become a City Guide. These usually last around 12-18 months and involve a mix of practical ‘on the job’ training and evening lecture/discussion meetings. You will be given written assignments to do and at the end of the course there is a walking exam.  There is a charge for all this – basically what you might expect to pay for three terms of evening classes.

The training is intensive but it’s also fun and you get the chance to meet lots of interesting people as well as learning about the history of Newcastle and the surrounding areas.

If all this appeals to you, then please contact us using the contact form below. We can then arrange to have a chat with you and give you some idea of when the next course might be scheduled.

We look forward to hearing from you.
