Farm Stay UK

Farm Stay UK was established in 1983 as The Farm Holiday Bureau, with 23 local groups, through the leadership and support provided by ADAS (then fully financed by MAFF), the Royal Agricultural Society of England (RASE), the National Tourist Boards (inc. the BTA), and the Farmer's Weekly. It still works closely with the founding bodies and currently has over 1200 members co-ordinated in 94 groups across the UK. Its regions are similar to those of the eight RDAs within England (ex. London) plus one each for Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales.

Group Travel Business Forum

The Group Travel Business Forum has been in existence for nearly five years as an informal grouping of professionals who specialise in providing products and services to the group travel and tourism market. It was established in recognition of the fact that the voice of group travel as a distinct sector of the industry is often missing in discussions with official bodies and in meetings of other professionals in the field, and the exchange of expertise and knowledge between group specialists can be very beneficial to both individuals and the sector as a whole.

Heritage Railway Association

The Heritage Railway Association represents the heritage and tourist railways and tramways of the UK and Ireland. Steam centres and many transport museums are also in membership. There are over one hundred railways operating in all areas of the UK and collectively they carry over 5m passengers each year.

Historic Houses

We represent the nation?s largest collection of independently owned historic houses and gardens. We are here to ensure these historic homes stay alive and accessible for generations to come. Our family includes over 1,600 important historic houses, many with open doors, waiting to be explored. Typically, Historic Houses properties remain lived-in homes, and all of them have fascinating and distinctive stories to tell. Those houses that don't open their doors to visitors on a regular basis often welcome people for weddings or events. Many of our houses have accommodation on site, from staying in luxurious rooms in the main house to glamping in a converted shepherd's hut in the grounds. We work to support these houses, keeping them safe. We advise owners on anything from rising damp to hosting festivals, and we lobby government on their behalf. We award those houses that have completed exceptional restorations, have wonderful gardens, and work tirelessly to excel in educational innovation. And we work to further research into historic houses

Historic Royal Palaces

Historic Royal Palaces is an independent charity that looks after the Tower of London, Hampton Court Palace, the Banqueting House, Kensington Palace and Kew Palace.

Institute of Tourist Guiding

The Institute of Tourist Guiding was launched on 18 April 2002 as the standard-setting body not only for Blue Badge tourist guides but for the whole tourist guiding sector. This momentous step for tourist guiding gives the greatest ever recognition of its contribution to the tourism industry and acknowledges the importance of a national Institute that has a distinct role in ensuring excellence now and for the future. The Institute was created following widespread nationwide consultation, the involvement of both the English Tourism Council and the Tourist Guiding Foundation and the approval of the Department of Culture, Media and Sport and the Department of Trade and Industry.
