Monty's Guide Ltd
To promote heritage and cultural attractions across the United Kingdom to both domestic and international audiences, and increase visitor numbers
To provide a platform that allows heritage and cultural attractions to promote themselves. This is on a commercial basis but deliberately designed to be exceptionally affordable for all sizes of attractions who are eligible to join.
Since I was a very small child I have always had a huge passion for trains and heritage railways. In my teenage years I volunteered with the Churnet Valley Railway on their PWAY gang, and throughly enjoyed the hands on experience. The reason I built Monty's Guide was because I wanted to bring together the best attractions in the United Kingdom which people like me would want to visit. It is deliberately designed towards visitors who are eager to find new historic & cultural places to visit. This includes museums, galleries, breweries, heritage railways, distilleries, gardens and industrial heritage. Wish a background working in the heritage sector, I hope that as a member of HRA, I am able to provide support and a platform which allows the heritage railway community to promote themselves alongside other great days out in the UK.
With both the impact of covid19 restrictions and the absence of a current portal which brings great attractions together, I hope that I (Monty's Guide) am able to provide an affordable resource which helps promote their attraction and events, and bring new visitors to their railway.
