TOURS THROUGH TIME

   

 

THE VERY BEST IN HISTORIC TOURING WITH SMALLER GROUP SIZES AND AN EXPERT TOUR LEADER

Tour England with Tours Through Time and discover English castles, historic abbeys, battlefields and monuments with castle tours, talks and walks. Special interest cultural holidays, castle tours, and heritage breaks in the UK and Europe from Brookland Travel.  Many include English Heritage and National Trust properties although private and lesser known properties are often tour highlights.

Most of these popular tours are led by Julian Humphrys, who read history at Emmanuel College, Cambridge. Julian has also enjoyed a career in museums and he talks regularly about history on TV and radio.  He is a regular contributor to BBC History Magazine and also the author of English Heritage’s Battlefield Hikes and “A Clash of Arms: Twelve British Battles”. His book “Enemies at the Gates” takes an entertaining look at English castles under siege and tells the stories from both the attackers and the besieged.

These historical, cultural and castle tours are operated by Brookland Travel who have enjoyed a long association with English Heritage and other cultural organisations including National Trust Groups, Decorative and Fine Art Societies (NADFAS), U3A, Probus, RHS Pershore College (Warwickshire).

WHAT OUR CUSTOMERS ARE SAYING...

"Hi team, we would like to thank for arranging a near perfect break with friendly staff, clean quiet rooms, a cosy restaurant serving simple well prepared food locally sourced. The mix of private gardens we found a delight, those on a more modest scale contrasting with the others unconstrained by budget. Sub tropical Herm, rugged Sark, such a contrast. Gill was the most informative guide we have encountered. Her close ties to all aspects of island life - she seemed to know everyone and everything - making us feel at home. Dear Andy, every ready with amusing anecdotes, flower shirts and immense horticultural knowledge. All told, a professionally planned and faultlessly operated trip. Our sincere thanks.

Mr R S , Surrey

"Glasgow and Ayrshire – September 2015 - Well, what a tour! It all went very well and many of our members have emailed me to say how much they enjoyed it. Thanks so much for putting this one together for me – and most importantly, I can’t praise Elisabeth Burns too highly. She has a remarkable recall of detail. I was at the front of the bus with her, as you would expect, and most of her information was delivered without script! Jim, the driver, a jolly dour Scot, was great fun and got us out of a few scrapes! Very best wishes
