Great Days out in the UK with Monty's Guide

I established Monty’s Guide in 2022 to help people just like you to bring together the wonderful attractions across the heritage, landscape and cultural sectors.  My aim is to provide honest, trustworthy and authoritative information (and opinions), and draw upon my own experiences working with the National Trust, private museums & collections.  

In short, I’m incredibly enthusiastic about the diverse range of attractions across the United Kingdom and this is why Monty’s Guide brings everyone together under one roof.

You can read more about my adventures and experiences across the heritage sector and the driving forces behind Monty’s Guide in the ‘About’ section of the site.
