Discover the Tudors tour – Early Bird booking offer

Posted By on December 22, 2017

I know it’s Christmas and you may have rather a lot on your plate (in more ways than one!), but I just wanted to let you know this piece of news.

Our sister site, the Tudor Society, has teamed up with British History Tours to offer Tudor history tours. Our very first tour, The Anne Boleyn Experience 2018, which is taking place in May, is fully booked, but we have just launched a new tour for September 2018, the Discover the Tudors Tour!

There is an early bird discount for the first 8 places booked, so that’s why I wanted to let you know ASAP. The first 8 places are £2800 per person, instead of £3100, a saving of £300! The tour is from 16th to 24th September.

I’m really excited about this tour, 1) Because I’m going on it, 2) Because it visits some of my very favourite places in the UK (including my hometown!), and 3) Because I will get to meet some of you lords and ladies! I can talk Tudor to my heart’s content!

Brief Itinerary

Here is a very brief itinerary, just to give you an idea, and you can find out more on the tour page at, along with how to pay your deposit, terms and conditions etc.

  • Day 1 – Pick up in London, travel to Windsor. Our hotel is opposite Windsor Castle! Expert speaker talk.
  • Day 2 – Visit the Windsor Castle, including St George’s Chapel.
  • Day 3 – Visit Hampton Court Palace. Expert speaker talk.

  • Day 7 – Travel to London. Visit London Charterhouse.
  • Day 8 – Shakespeare’s Bankside and Globe Theatre Tour followed by a talk on Elizabethan dress. Visit to the National Portrait Gallery.
  • Day 9 – Breakfast, check-out and say goodbye.

    In order to confirm the tour do you leave a deposit, or do you require the full fee upfront?

    Thanks in advance.

    Merry Christmas!

      Hi Patricia,
      Merry Christmas to you too. A deposit (half the tour cost) is payable now to secure your place. There are two options – deposit for two people travelling together or the deposit for a single traveller. See the deposit payment options at I hope you can come!

      Best Wishes,

    This sounds AMAZING! I’m sorry I can’t go 🙁 , (being from Australia makes it hard), but wanted to say Merry Christmas, and thanks for a great website that I have been enjoying for years.

    1. Claire says:

      Thank you, that’s very kind of you! I hope you had a lovely Christmas.

  3. How can this tour cost the amount you are charging.?

    1. Claire says:

      It’s a luxury 8-night tour including staying at 4 star hotels with meals, transport, visits to all of the historic sites (entrance fees), speakers, two full-time tour leaders etc. I know another Tudor tour which was a day more than this one that cost over £6000 per person, so I do think that this is value for money. It’s not a budget tour, we wanted to offer the experience of a lifetime. I’m really excited about going on this, I can’t wait.

        Ah, you’re lovely, that’s so kind of you to say. Hope you had a lovely Christmas.

    Ha ha, the only only ones who get a “merry Christmas” back, are the ones who can probably afford to go on this trip.

    1. Claire says:

      I do try to keep up with comments but don’t see every one so sorry about the late “Merry Christmas”. I did do a Merry Christmas message and video as I knew I’d miss answering people’s comments, it’s a busy time. Hope you had a lovely Christmas.
