Welcome to Sherborne Walks
Join our local Blue Badge Tour Guides to experience a variety of guided walking tours based in the beautiful market town of Sherborne and beyond.
As local guides we can add extra depth and enjoyment as you explore the town – it can make a big difference!
In two hours, we can unlock 1300 years of history of one of the most beautiful towns in Dorset, help you meet local characters and take you on a walking tour back through time.
After your walk you can spend time visiting Sherborne Castle and The Old Castle; the stunning Sherborne Abbey, Sherborne Museum, explore the independent shops, cafes, pubs and restaurants. Visit Discover Sherborne for more ideas.
We are experienced high-quality Blue Badge guides who are the official tourist guides of the United Kingdom. We wear a Blue Badge to indicate our professionalism and are recognised by local tourist bodies throughout the UK, including Visit England and Visit Dorset.
We make Sherborne accessible to all and help you enjoy your visit by providing guided walks, ideas of what else to do and where to visit.
We believe the personal touch is what will make your visit special.
