Who We Are
Blue Badger Tours are owned and operated by Tom McCafferty - a Cumbrian who has recently retired from the County's Police Force after 28 years of service. Those years have helped Tom to acquire a tremendous knowledge of the Lake District, its people, places and its history.
Tom has undergone the intensive training programme in order to gain the coveted qualifications of Registered Blue Badge Guide and Driver Guide. His training with the Police Force, Fell Rescue Service and of course the Blue Badge Organisation equip him for all aspects of guiding.
He is based in Millom in the South West of the county but his exceptional knowledge of the whole of the Lake District and Hadrian's Wall allow him to guide wherever visitors wish to go.
Tom has built up a huge array of contacts in all aspects of tourism, from fellow Blue Badge Guides to hoteliers, landowners and transport organisations.
