  • Expert group leaders
  • Spectacular houses
  • Like-minded fellow travellers

While our clients are unable to travel further afield, we have been inspired to create some unique small group tours in the UK, each with an historical theme which explores the bonds between the UK and the Indian Subcontinent. Each will accommodate no more than 20 people and will be accompanied by two of our team of expert leaders.

With departures in June and July 2021, Derbyshire’s Grand Houses is a five day dive in to the magical Chatsworth House, Haddon Hall and Hardwick Hall as well as the village of Eyam, famed for isolating itself during the Great Plague. Accommodation is in the charming Devonshire Arms, part of the Chatsworth Estate.

Nabobs of Berkshire is a four day tour through the Royal County of Berkshire which is home to a number of houses owned by families who made their fortunes with the East India Company. Accompanied by a specialist historian, we will have access to several of these houses which are not open to the public and, in some cases, meet the owners. Accommodation is in Donnington Grove, a spectacular Gothic mansion.
