Rosalind Hutchinson

Rosalind Hutchinson is a veteran tour leader and Blue Badge Guide. She is a true local expert, a teacher of other guides, and a recipient of the prestigious Member of the British Empire (MBE), an honor awarded by the Queen of England for special services and accomplishments. Rosalind interweaves layers of English history, architecture and literature for a memorable well-rounded experience and takes a special interest in the landscape of the British detective novel.


As guide/historian/emcee/hostess, Rosalind was as gracious and knowledgeable as could be. In my experience on Smithsonian trips, she ranks at the top.

Ros is a walking, talking British history encyclopedia! So much wit and charm and unending knowledge! Yet will all these attributes, an engaging personality! Smithsonian has a winner in her! The English should have made her a DAME!
