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 Silver Shadow Mark 2.
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.
Since it is bespoke you can choose which areas of history and their locations interest you. You could choose Sulgrave Manor, the ancestral home of George Washington and/or Stowe House, currently an independent boarding school and the former palatial home of the Duke of Buckingham and Chandos, and/or Canon’s Ashby, one of the former monasteries dissolved on the orders of King Henry VIII.
Alternatively you can visit Blenheim Palace, ancestral home of the Duke of Marlborough, military genius of the 1700s and birthplace and grave of the greatest Englishman, Winston Churchill. There is an opportunity to visit delightful villages in the Cotswolds such as Bourton on the Water and on the Thames at Henley upon Thames, where the world famous regatta takes place.
Trips further afield can include Hampton Court, a Tudor palace built by Cardinal Wolsey and stolen by King Henry VIII (explore the Palace and come to understand the ramifications of the Royal Divorce, the confiscation of land from the Church of Rome to the spread of the Church’s wealth amongst the landed gentry and merchants and its eventual impact on liberty and the growth of the British Empire).
