Battle of Britain TourAlthough fought largely in the air, there is so much that can be seen on the ground to bring this seminal British battle to life. From understanding the importance of radar and scrambling fighters at just the right time, to seeing many of the aircraft involved in the fight for our island, helping you imagine the sights and sounds of that summer of 1940.
Norman Conquest TourIt wasn’t – as that fake news channel of the time, the Bayeux Tapestry, had it – one in the eye for Harold what won it. After his victory at Hastings, William had to press on and fight to secure London, as this fascinating tour brings to life. Regarding the Norman Conquest, the next sentence is ‘But it took him another six years – longer than WW II – to finally secure the throne in 1072.
Northwest Frontier of RomeIt was so much more than just a wall; but what was it for ? Keeping out the Picts ? Controlling trade and collecting taxes ? Or showing off the military and cultural might of Rome ? These are some of the questions we explore as we visit one of the most wildly beautiful parts of our nation.
The Wars of the Roses TourThe stakes were high. These wars were not fought for land, wealth or religious ideals but the right to rule the country. As history tells us, when the prize is a kingdom, the fighting gets bloody – and the Wars of Roses were some of the bloodiest in our history, as you’ll feel as you tour the key battlefields.
