The Foundation Speakers & Tour Guides Programme

A tour guide holds up a picture of a WW2 veteran and his medals to a group of interest tourgoers at the Runnymede Memorial.

We have over 300 expert speakers and tour guides who engage with people of all ages across the UK in schools, colleges, universities and through many different social and community groups.

Our tours and talks cover various subjects relevant to the CWGC, including architecture, horticulture, conservation, our archive and the history of the individuals commemorated in the sites we care for.

We can adapt our presentations to your requirements, tailoring content to reflect a particular location, region or theme. Delivering over one thousand presentations a year, we connect people with the wide-ranging scope of the CWGC, from its origins in the 1920s to the relevance of its work today and in the future.  

Our guided tours of UK cemeteries containing CWGC commemorations are offered to the public from May to November.

Tours for private groups of ten people or more can also be booked. All bookings are made through our online booking system.
