Blue  Badge Guides are trained and examined by  the Institute of Tourist Guiding. The training is detailed and comprehensive, and the examinations rigorous.

As well as acquiring knowledge, Blue Badge Guides are trained in the selection and presentation of material.
This has been so successful that English trainers have trained guides all over the world, and  the Blue Badge is recognised internationally. Frances is qualified to train new guides on site and in towns  to all levels.

Frances enjoys a wide range of interests, many of which further enhance her ability to deliver highly successful talks on a wide range of topics. Her areas of interest and expertise include:-

Frances Farrer-Brown was born and brought up on a mixed farm. Rural affairs, the countryside, gardens, history and literature have always been an abiding interest.
Frances is a qualified nurse, and has been married to David, a retired GP, for over thirty  years. They  met while both were training at  St Thomas’ Hospital in London, and have two  grown up children. Frances and David run a very  successful part-time bed and breakfast business from the family  home in West Sussex.

In addition to and complementing her skills as a public speaker, in 1999  Frances became a qualified and registered Blue Badge Tourist Guide.
The Blue Badge  is the British national standard guiding qualification and an internationally recognised bench mark of excellence.
