    Questions!

    I would like to ask the difference between show around and show round?
    Are they the same?

    Re: Questions!

    Most people make no distinction. Some (myself include) prefer to reserve 'show round' for something indoors (a big room or a building), and 'show around' for something like a tour of several buildings:

    It's a big house, but Agatha will show you round.

    It's a large estate. I'll ask the Estate Manager to show you around.
