Kingston Tour Guides
The Kingston Tour Guides service can be tailored to meet particular requirements, for example, private walks and illustrated talks. We regularly give talks to schools and colleges. We can also provide private walks of Surbiton on request or we can deliver talks on the history of Surbiton to your school or group. Visit the website for full details.
Kingston Tour Guides is a voluntary organisation funded partly by donations from satified walkers and partly by a grant from Kingston Council.
