Tudor Tour

I will show you some of the wonderful locations in my Rolls Royce or Bentley. I am a former History master from a well known Independent School and hope to educate and entertain you.

Since it is bespoke you can choose which areas of history and their locations interest you. You could choose Sulgrave Manor, the ancestral home of George Washington and/or Canon's Ashby, one of the former monasteries dissolved on the orders of King Henry VIII. Alternatively, you can visit Blenheim Palace, home of the Duke of Marlborough and birthplace and grave of the greatest Englishman, Winston Churchill. There is an opportunity to visit delightful villages in the Cotswolds or visit the Downton Abbey locations.

Trips can include Hampton Court, built by Wolsey and stolen by Henry VIII (explore the Palace and understand the ramifications of the Royal Divorce, the confiscation of land from the Church to the spread of its wealth and its eventual impact on liberty and the growth of the British Empire).
