About us

Invisible Cities is a social enterprise. We don’t believe in labels or stereotypes. We want to show that everyone has great potential, a fact reflected in our tour guides.

We train people affected by homelessness to become walking tour guides of their own city and offer these alternative tours to tourists and locals.

Our training focuses on confidence building, public speaking and customer service. We partner with professional tour guides to build bespoke tours and practice our routes.

Invisible (Cardiff) is Getting Ready: Meet Julia, Invisible (Cardiff) Service Manager

Hello, I’m Julia and I’ve just started as the Invisible (Cardiff) Service Manager. Over the past two decades I’ve been working as a theatre director and producer specialising in developing artists and new work whilst at the same time I also worked as a tour manager, guiding groups across Europe.

That’s why I leapt at this new opportunity! I couldn’t believe that a role existed that allow me to combine all the things I enjoy doing and thinking about, whilst also directly impacting people who have been affected by homelessness.

Our immediate goals are to collaborate with the National Museum Wales and the Glamorgan Archives who will play a big part in the training programme and ongoing opportunities for trainee guides to access heritage. We are gearing towards our first event on the 8th February where we will run a listening lunch for anyone interested in training to be a guide to find out more and help to shape the training. We hope to launch our first tour in early Spring and create a buzz across the tourism and hospitality sectors in Cardiff.
