Managing Director, Tim Ridgway, has been heavily involved in organising historically based trips for The Anne Boleyn Files, and we are proud that he is now able to spend his time actively involved in History Tours of Britain. His expertise allows us to have an interactive and useful website, and his eye for detail ensures that our clients always get the best from their tours of England.
Tim is leading both tours, along with Gareth Russell.
Claire’s specialism is Tudor history, particularly the reigns of Henry VIII and Elizabeth I, and she uses her knowledge of the period to plan exciting, educational and luxury tours to bring this wonderful period to life for attendees. Claire spends every day knee deep (or perhaps neck deep!) in Tudor history so you can be assured that these tours will give you the very best Tudor history experience.
Claire and Tim are both committed to providing tour attendees with their dream vacations, the experience of a lifetime, and work hard to ensure that everyone is 100% happy.
Gareth Russell is an author, historian, past student of Oxford University and creator of the “Confessions of a Ci-Devant” blog which he describes as “Musings on history, life, literature, movies, art and merriment”. He is author of “Popular”, a novel released by Penguin in July 2011, and is an historian with a special interest in Anne Boleyn. He has researched Anne’s life extensively and is planning to write a biography on her. His biography of Catherine Howard is due to be released soon.
Gareth will be leading The Executed Queens Tour and The Anne Boleyn Experience with Tim Ridgway
