There is nothing in the way you live today that doesn't have its roots in history - Philippa Lacey Brewell

Philippa goes on location!

Over the past month I have embarked on a new way to share what I know with people who follow British History Tours on Facebook and You Tube.

By 'going live' on Facebook I have introduced thousands of people, almost instantly to stories, people and places which tell a story in our history.

If you missed them, here are the three most popular from the past few weeks.

To see them all, please visit the Facebook page.


Henry as Duke of York

Henry VIII grew up as the Duke of York, and for any of you who know how British titles are handed out in the monarchy, will know that that it the title of the second in line to the throne.

So who was the first before Henry...?


​Walking in the footsteps of Elizabeth I

I take you into the private state apartments of Elizabeth I, built for her by her lifetime friend and companion, Robert Dudley, at Kenilworth Castle.


On location at the Battle of Worcester

Standing on Fort Royal Hill I introduce you the final battle of the English Civil Wars and the Royalist HQ, the Commandery, which has a history all of its own!
