About Kingston Tour Guides
An interesting, fun and informative guided walk about Kingston's rich history. We go back to the Anglo Saxons and finish with present day. We meet under the Golden Queen outside the Market House in the market place at 11.00 on every Sunday in the summer and the first Sunday in the month in the winter. It is suitable for all ages and we go at a leisurely pace. We would love to see you there and share with you Kingston’s rich heritage.

A fascinating and free talk in Kingston town centre. Our guide, Julian McCarthy, a published author of books on Kingston, was full of lively commentary and facts on local landmarks, history, and people. Highly recommended, for locals as well as visitors.

We booked a talk with Mike at the Coronation Stone, which - pre-Covid 19 - was meant to be a two hour walk through Kingston and was cancelled. Mike did a fantastic job "walking" us through Kingston's commercial and regal history. Lamentably, he was let down by half the bookings for this gratuitous event. It was basically an audience of three. He kindly pointed out to us that the people not showing up were also booked for a later event near Kingston bridge, so we were able to join this one, too! Charlotte, the other guide explained the history of the bridge and fun stories about it. Both guides were exceptionally passionate about Kingston, knowledgeable and made history fun. Still looking forward to the usual tours at some stage. Should you consider the tours and talks, please do honour your bookings to keep up the guides' motivation. They really deserve it!

An amazing guided walk of this beautiful town. We have met Martha, our guide, at the meeting point in this windy Sunday morning. Martha has been informative and clear throughout the walk, taking us (only two guests in the group, as my friends could not make it) through the historical development of the town, its royal past and importance in the area, the people of the past and more contemporary ones who have marked this town. Martha has talked in a very clear and understandable manner, and my brother, whose English is not at the highest, has understood all the information we were given. Martha has shown a clear love for the town and has passed that on us, who... already are in love with it! At the end of the 2-hour tour, we have been granted a bonus walk to another part of the town that we had not covered. Amazing delivery! Many, many thanks, Martha. Hope to see you again

An exceptionally passionate tour by Julian. I had no idea Kingston had so many hidden gems and such fascinating history. You will be amazed, I don't think I'll ever see the town the same again! Amidst the detailed explanations of historic characters, architectural nuances, there were loads of fascinating stories told. Definitely recommend!!
