“Seventy” is an important number in 2017. We have heard about the seventieth anniversary of the marriage of the H.M. The Queen and H.R.H. Prince Phillip; the 70th birthday of BBC’s popular programme “Woman’s Hour”.
The year 2017 also represents an accumulation of 70 years of tour guiding experience assembled by the Forest of Dean & Wye Valley Tour Guides. The individual guides have different strengths and interests. There are those who specialise in flora and fauna; those who know about castles, churches, abbeys, industrial heritage; we have railway experts. Some prefer to lead walks; others prefer to accompany coach parties. Then there are those who love to talk and deliver speeches to local organisations.
The year 2018 will be upon us soon. We hear there is a high-profile wedding taking place in Berkshire in May. If Prince Harry and Meghan would like a honeymoon with a difference, we suggest that they come to the Forest of Dean where we will lead them on our exquisite bluebell walks.
