It’s July already. How did that happen? Time is flying by, even though we still seem to be standing still. In the world of guiding we are anticipating visitors from abroad coming back in 2022, and bookings for NEXT year are looking good.
I can’t get there? But I can see it online
In the meantime I know that many foreign visitors are glued to things like online talks and tours, to get a taste of what to expect next year and beyond.
– choose an online talk
That’s why I’m still doing regular Zoom talks (roughly one every four days) about various aspects of British history and places to visit.
- Reading Abbey 900 – celebrating the forgotten town of Reading and its abbey, founded in 1121.
- The Royal Wives of Windsor – all about our Queens’ Consort, the wives of our kings.
- An Heir and a Spare – find out all about the heirs who never became king.
- The Kennet and Avon Canal – the story of Southern Britain’s premier inland waterway.
and coming soon:
- The Thames at Windsor and Eton – liquid history on part of England’s greatest river.
I’m on my way. I must see somewhere for real
Are you keen to explore Britain this summer? Now is the perfect time for that staycation – whilst it is quiet. Can you get out there and make the most of all those famous sights that you have always been meaning to visit, like Windsor and Oxford? That’s great. But also take time to discover those off-the-beaten-track places; the towns that just fall off the “must do” list.
– how about one of these town strolls
Take your pick of these other Thames-side towns, each with much more history than you might at first think.
- Henley-on-Thames. Rowing, brewing and Midsomer Murders.
- Reading. The three Bs, a 900 year old abbey and the Bayeux Tapestry.
- Abingdon. 6,000 years of history, exquisite almshouses, throwing buns.
– pick your country walk
Or maybe a country walk is more to your taste. Which of these would stimulate you?
- Beside the water? The towpaths of the River Thames or the Kennet and Avon Canal.
- Into the hills? The beechwoods of the Chilterns or the open skies of the Ridgeway.
Make your bookings now
I am taking bookings NOW for all of these tours and talks.
Why not fit a tour or a talk into your summer plans?
