Tour provider Blue Badge Guides
Your qualified Blue Badge Guide will reveal, at each location you visit, fascinating details of how the foundations of the special relationship between the rulers and the people of both nations were forged.
We visit Windsor Castle, a royal home for 1,000 years, where great matters of diplomacy and independence have been decided and royal weddings celebrated. We walk the meadow at Runnymede to uncover the history of the Magna Carta and take a scenic tour on to Salisbury to see the document itself. At medieval Southampton we link the constitutional story with the bravery and endeavour of the Mayflower Pilgrims when they embarked upon their voyage to the New World in 1620.
