A right Royal Experience
This special tour will introduce you to Britain's rich royal history, showing you must-sees, landmark sights, and royal haunts - plus a few hidden gems that haven't made it into the Rough Guide.
Our informative guides know the British Monarchy back to front, and they'll talk you though the myths, legends, and front page headlines that have made the British Monarchy famous all over the world.
Swinging 60's Experience
Come with us on a music-driven journey to the sixties and beyond. After working in the music industry alongside rock legends, including the Rolling Stones, this is one of our favourite tours.
We can tell it as it really happened and includes visits to all the main music sites from Liverpool’s Cavern club to London's Abbey Road studios to the still-swinging Carnaby St.
The sport of kings and queens
On our journey we'll visit Epsom - the home of the Epsom Derby, Ascot - the Queens favourite racecourse, Cheltenham - in the beautiful Cotswolds, Aintree - the Grand National and be immersed in not only the past, which is filled with fasciinating and sometimes saucy tales, but in the present too.
We'll visit Newmarket, known as the Home of Horse Racing, where King Charles II first fell in love with the sport. He built a palace in what was formerly a sleepy village, and moved his entire court, including all his ministers, to Newmarket twice a year for the racing season.
The English Reformation - Henry VIII and all that!
A Modern Pilgrimage
Our 2019 (10 day) feature filled journey into Southern Britain’s turbulent and sometimes bloody history
Discover the fascinating history of Christianity in England
Come with us on a fascinating journey into England’s past, with expert speakers, good food and amazing stories.
We will be modern day pilgrims, travelling Britain’s highways and well-trodden trails to sites of ancient spirituality, historic palaces and we will be feasting in medieval style.
An unmissable experience for anyone who wants to come face to face with England’s spiritual past and the divisions which split the realm apart for hundreds of years.
Sometimes bloody, always fascinating, this is a pilgrimage into a highly-relevant past for modern pilgrims – of every sort.
