Welcome to Concierge History Tours. My name is Jonathan and I would like to show you some of the wonderful Historical locations in Oxfordshire, Buckinghamshire and Northamptonshire in my Oxford Blue Rolls Royce Silver Shadow Mark 2 and Cambridge Blue Bentley Turbo R.
I am a former History master from a large and well known Independent School near Buckingham and I intend to take you to various historical sights and educate and entertain you.
This is a bespoke tour, and you can choose from Tudor or Shakespeare!
Either… visit Hampton Court Palace, built by Cardinal Wolsey, Lord Chancellor to Henry VIII, who unable to arrange a divorce for Henry to marry Ann Boleyn, lost his power and in order to placate his master, he ‘voluntarily’ gave up this palace. See the Chapel where Henry was told of the infidelity of his young queen, Katherine Howard, the corridor haunted by her screams as she tried to beg for her life. You will also see the structure of the King’s Council, the Great Hall where Henry dined and the great kitchens, and the formal gardens and Maze. We will have tea at the Phyllis Court Club in Henley.
Or… visit the birthplace of Shakespeare, England’s greatest writer and poet, at Stratford upon Avon. Next on our route are the cottage where Anne Hathaway, the Bard’s wife, resided, the Royal Shakespeare Company’s purpose-built theatre, and various other places of note in this world-famous literary town. For all you ‘culture vultures’, this itinerary can be combined with the fascinating automaton museum in Compton Verney or Warwick Castle for a view of a medieval castle which has been fully restored and is a great historical resource.
These bespoke tours cost £650 for up to 3 passengers. You can choose which areas of history and locations interest you.
