History holidays that keep your partner happy too

Jacobite supporters going into battle
It's a conundrum we see all the time. You love history and want to take a specialist holiday, but your partner doesn’t share your passion for the past and won't take part in the tours. 

You want a historian to illuminate the people, politics and plotting from the UK’s defining periods. But your loved one wants lazy days and a whistle-stop tour of the city sights. 

Our history holidays will suit you both. 

We're the only history holiday operator that reduces prices for partners who simply want to enjoy the hotel, head to the spa and explore the city at their own speed.

And with tours based in York, Oxford, Bath, Newcastle, Rochester and the Scottish Highlands, plus European tours in Ireland and Belgium, we cover destinations that are packed with history and great for tourists. 

So while you are exploring battlefields and historic houses with our expert guides, your travelling companion can choose to relax at the hotel or visit the city sights that they enjoy. We think that's a much more enticing prospect to traipsing over fields and through ruins for the day! 

Every evening, we'll bring the whole group together with meals and activities that you'll both enjoy. We start with an ice-breaker on day one so both you and your partner get to meet the rest of the group. Later days can include wine tasting, restaurants and quizzes.
