Welcome to the International Guild of Battlefield Guides

Whether you are an established Battlefield Guide, retired from the craft, interested in how it is done or considering a future in guiding, the International Guild of Battlefield Guides is for you.



The Guild was established to analyse, develop and raise the understanding and practice of battlefield guiding, to provide an environment to meet fellow guides and to share information, expertise and knowledge on a wide range of issues. The Guild offers members professional development, insights into new approaches and areas of interest, and through its comprehensive Validation Programme, give guides a chance to prove they can meet exacting professional standards.

Since its inauguration in 2003 the Guild has grown, both in numbers and stature. It now has members from Canada, South Africa, New Zealand, Australia, Belgium, France, Luxembourg and Holland.



So whether your interest and expertise lie in the Battles of Barnet, Blenheim, Badajoz, Blood River or Beaumont Hamel you will find Guild members who share your passion and enthusiasm for history and battlefield guiding!
