Historical Trips was founded with the aim of bringing you tours that tell the whole story of some of the crucial episodes from World History: the great events that have shaped, indeed have made, the world we live in today. Our historians outline the cultural, social and political contexts, as well as the personal stories, behind history. They include:

• Original themes that are unique to Historical Trips

• Guides who are professional historians, experts in their fields

• Small and convivial groups

• Tours that are structured to tell complete stories

• Prices that include all breakfasts, dinners, museum fees and tips

In 2014 we are offering tours which cover aspects of the First and Second World Wars, the Cold War, and the Spanish Civil War. These journeys range across France, Belgium, Germany, Spain and Poland.

2014 sees several anniversaries, including the commemoration of the hundred years that have passed since the outbreak of World War One. We are running two tours to mark this solemn occasion, a general history of the ‘Great War’ and a tour more narrowly focussed on the events of 1914. In both cases we will try to accommodate the wishes of tour participants who wish to visit sites associated with loved ones.

In 2015 we will be expanding our range to include almost 1000 years of World history: from the Magna Carta to Renaissance Italy; from the machinations of Henry VIII’s royal court to the jungles of Vietnam. A Full brochure detailing over 40 tours will be available shortly, in the meantime you can register your interest here.
