Heritage-History Tours in England

Boasting a long and fascinating history, breathtaking countryside and a wealth of historical monuments, England has it all. With Europe’s largest city, London, at its heart, England is immersed in history, majesty and culture spanning some 2000 years. Taking a heritage-history tour in England is a great way to discover the country’s countless delights, get your share of sightseeing, and learn the intricacies of its fascinating past from a local tour guide.

England’s capital, London, is a great place to start for all visitors to London. Well known as the home to the Queen of England, visitors can marvel at the famed Buckingham Palace, explore its manicured gardens, and watch the daily change of the guards ceremony in the royal courtyard. Historical landmarks are dotted right across London, from the the iconic Big Ben clock tower to Westminster Abbey, the Tower Bridge and the world famous British Museum. But traveling with a tour guide will allow you to escape the crowds, learn about events which shaped the country from a local tour guide and see the best sites in the nick of time.

London’s heritage is something to behold, but the city has also seen its share of hardship, intrigue and mystery. Tour guides will take you back in time to the Great Fire of London in 1666 and the bombing of London during the Blitz in 1940, and explain how the events changed the lives of thousands, and how the city rose again from the ashes. Guides will also introduce you to the fascinating past of Smithfield, an area dating back to the 1300s. Originally an execution ground due to its proximity to London, the site was also where the Great Fire of London eventually blew itself out. For history tours with a twist, you can also gain an insight to the famed murders of Jack the Ripper. Tour guides will make the hairs stick up on the back of your neck on an intriguing journey that visits the killing sites and attempt to get an idea of who the iconic serial killer really was.
