Our Clients say...

Everyone absolutely loved their tour with you yesterday…it was a very memorable afternoon at the Wallace Collection. You seemed to effortlessly combine historical fact, the history of the collection with your detailed art historian’s eye. You spoke with passion and fluidity and your enthusiasm was infectious … I know we were all enthralled!
AH, King’s Society, The King’s School Canterbury (Wallace Collection tour)


My clients have just written to me and have said that your London tour was the best they have ever had. They have travelled the world so this is praise indeed! Many thanks.
SG, tour agent (British Museum tour)

London’s treasure trove of history is a delight to discover - more so when accompanied by this veritable, albeit wonderfully charming, encyclopedia of fine art. Balston brings the history of London to life with her melodic British tone and fascinating narratives, allowing guests to truly experience - rather than merely visit - the paradigmatic offerings of the city.

What an FABULOUS first day you gave us in London!! We can not thank you enough for making our day so special and we all enjoyed our time with you and Georgia!! We all agreed that you are our favourite guide to date!!!
CW, American travel agent (the Tower of London)

Small groups, passionate guides, enlightening conversations: these are the three ingredients that go into making Art History UK such a treat…it is not about lectures and seminars (though it is deeply educating): the focus is on bringing London’s treasures – the galleries and the museum – to life.

A huge thanks from us for helping make last night’s event so special. We are getting such positive feedback from all of the clients – some of the most glowing I’ve ever received. I was really impressed with everything you guys did so please pass on my thanks to your team as well for making it such a success.

My son Charlie and I were taken round the National Gallery by Rose Balston, and in three brief hours, we were inspired to levels of wonder. Rose has the gift of allowing you to discover things in the paintings that you would never have noticed before…I’d strongly recommend you join an Art History UK tour.

Pele was a true delight.  She took a genuine interest in my daughter, Kathryn, including providing Kathryn with a reading list at the end of the week, inspiring Kathryn to write and read out loud two poems and then giving her specific feedback on them, and inviting us to attend and participate in a private poetry salon she conducted that week.  Kathryn has not stopped talking about the trip. Please thank her for her extraordinary efforts for us.

Last night was BRILLIANT, Art History UK gets it right every time!
AH, private client (Soane Museum tour)

Art History UK is a gift to the cultural Philistine. With such a broad range of tours on offer, there will be something for everyone to enjoy. Rose Balston is the best tour guide I have ever encountered- interesting, inspiring, passionate about her subject, and extremely well-versed in the history of art and architecture of London; the perfect Cicerone.
EG, private client (Leighton House)

The personal nature of Art History UK tours was a real bonus. We spent five days together and anything I asked for, Rose sorted. With her overwhelming knowledge of London, bubbly personality and endless charm her days were without doubt our favourite days in London – I will certainly be recommending her to all my friends!
MN, private client (Greenwich, Bury St Edmunds and the National Gallery tours)

We loved loved loved our day on Thursday. She has such a light touch – full of facts and intriguing details; she speaks so easily and engagingly. How lovely it would be to look at the rest of London with her as a guide!
RS, private client (Georgian and Medieval London tour)

Thank you so much for last night – it was such fun, I met some awesome people and I learnt SO much. I have never seen you guys in action and you are all maestras!’
CH, private client (Mayfair Tour)

I hugely enjoyed myself last night. Such a nice change from the usual event and I thought it attracted a more highbrow client! Thank you very much.
JG, London bank (private visit to Leighton House)

Art History UK has given me two excellent days opening my eyes to interesting London sights. Rose is a delightful guide, the enthusiasm for her subject is infectious. Art History UK days are planned meticulously; their groups feel both well informed and well looked after at the end of the day.
MW, private client (Wren to Rogers and Greenwich tour)

Thank you. You were brilliant yesterday as ever. We thoroughly enjoyed our walk through Greenwich, Stuart vanity and charity, genius and patient John Harrison, delicious lunch and lovely sunshine all brought into lively focus through your amazing knowledge.
AN, private client (Greenwich)

I can’t tell you how interesting and rewarding I found the Rembrandt tour. You possess the perfect balance in terms of delivering the information and engaging your audience.
JR, private client (Medieval London tour)

Rose Balston is a marvel in the, too often fusty, world of art history. She is 29, sparkles with wit and cites Charles II and Diego Velazquez as two of her ‘ideal dinner party men’.
FP, Running in Heels magazine (Man, a Measure of All Things, Art Shot)

Their knowledge was encyclopaedic and teaching was interesting and informative. They were immensely enthusiastic about every aspect of London and certainly enthused their audience.
LH, private client (Tower and Westminster)

We all loved our Rembrandt day with you – you were very professional – it was well thought out and was great fun as well as being very informative.
MG, private client (Rembrandt tour)
