I am fortunate to live with my family in the beautiful and fascinating city of Bath. I also know the rest of the West Country very well. I grew up in Dorset and Somerset, and am qualified to guide right across the South West of England: namely Wiltshire, Gloucestershire, Bristol, Somerset, Dorset, Devon and Cornwall.
As well as working as a guide, I am also a long-established travel journalist. I am The Daily Telegraph's Bath expert – you can read my articles on my home city, as well as other places in the South West and elsewhere, here: www.telegraph.co.uk/travel/team/fred-mawer/. I also regularly contribute to the travel section the Mail on Sunday: for many years I have written its travel advice column, as The Crafty Traveller.
