BELLA HENMAN

I am an official Oxford Green Badge guide.  I graduated in History and History of Art and worked in publishing before training to become a guide in 2012. I loved learning about the fascinating City and University of Oxford and exploring the beautiful Colleges, and enjoy passing my enthusiasm and interest on to others.

My particular interests are Art, History, Architecture and Literature but I am equally happy to do general tours of Oxford and the University. I also do tours for children, with references to Alice in Wonderland, Harry Potter, C. S. Lewis, J.R.R Tolkein and other popular subjects.

My aim is to design the tour to suit the audience, and it is the variety of subjects and visitors that makes guiding so interesting.

I have been working as a professional Guide in Oxford for 11years. I was born and brought up in Scotland. Previously I was an actress working mostly in the theatre, including London's West End, but gave it up to bring up my five children. I love Oxford ,and now live nearby in the Cotswolds.


I love guiding and meet so many interesting people from all over the world. I particularly enjoy guiding young people. I am very happy to take prospective students and give them an insight to being a student at Oxford.

I am an experienced multilingual Blue Badge Guide and the author of the Oxford Plaques Guide, a book that highlights the stories behind the city’s myriad plaques.  

 

I delight in showing visitors round Oxford and in helping them discover intriguing details about the city and the University.  Oxford never ceases to enchant and surprise me and I look forward to sharing my enthusiasm for this beautiful place with the many people who visit it.
