History tours

Our History tours focus on significant events, encounters and destinations, from castle-builders and conquest in medieval Wales to The Making of Argentina; from forces that shaped the Western Balkans to the passion and politics of civil war Spain. Acclaimed historians provide context and analysis on in-depth journeys through place and time.

Central to all our history tours is the choice of lecturer; top academics and experts with first-hand experience of the places and detailed knowledge of the period in question. They include former diplomats, army officers and foreign correspondents – well placed through their myriad contacts to open doors onto the past. 

Additionally, our UK based ​residential history symposia programme presents leading scholarship in digestible and entertaining ways. We run one of two of these events per year – contact us to register your interest for 2024.
