Halal Tourism Britain provides a range of services for those interesting in attracting Arab/ Halal travellers or learning about the historical connections of Muslims with Britain. Please note we only take on paid work.
We have provided consultation to different countries and shopping destinations to make their locations more attractive for Halal travellers, for example, Bicester Village, Regent Street Association to name a few.
Speeches / Panel Discussions
AbdulMaalik Tailor, is a regular speaker on Halal tourism and Muslim Heritage. He has spoken to different audiences within the tourism industry and at Visit Britain headquarters, the national tourist office for Britain. If you wish for your tourism sector especially within a non-Muslim country to learn how to attract Halal travellers look no further!
To add value to Halal tourism is Muslim heritage. AbdulMaalik Tailor is a keen speaker on Muslim heritage in Britain, from local authorities to speaker participation in seminars, or interfaith networks and educational settings. We are able to check scripts for media outlets, public shows, attractions or exhibition that have an Islamic heritage part within it.
If you would like for us to commission a tour for you whether it would be for a festival or a setting such as a museum or a gallery, you may approach us as we have tours established at the National Portrait Gallery and The Foundling Museum. In Sept 2018 we were commissioned by Tate Britain to deliver their first Islamic tour which attracted a record-breaking 70 attendees for the tour. We had were commissioned to carry out culinary tours on Waltham Forest, the First London Borough of Culture 2019. We do cater for local authorities, staff associations, students groups – happy to hear from you!
Museum & Galleries
We provide consultation for interpretation and visitor inclusion. This was done at Tate Britain who updated their labels accordingly and stated that it “was the first time a non-western interpretation was offered”
We have an exhibition that celebrates Muslim contribution to Britain specifically, which may be hired for events.
Do you have a brand wishing to launch it in the UK? Contact us so we can take care of the arrangements such as influencers, top locations, with our open-top sightseeing bus or the traditional black taxi of London! Go on, give it that extra touch!
We have taken part in a number of media interviews about Halal tourism, Muslim heritage in Britain and as AbdulMaalik Tailor is a mentor and a speaker about converts to Islam, himself being one, he provides an additional benefit of being approached by the media.
AbdulMaalik is Britain’s first professionally qualified Muslim tour guide and has assessed other guides in guiding skills. We offer Hajj and Umrah, Halal travel companies and Mosques guides the opportunity to learn and enhance their guide’s guiding skills. All too often, religious or historical guides may have knowledge and content but how to deliver is by some considered to be an art.
