Mike Higginbottom Interesting Times offers a range of architectural and social history themed tours for individuals and couples who wish to visit places of interest in congenial company, using comfortable hotels or adult college-accommodation with car-parking and practical access by public transport.

Mike’s tours give the opportunity to see more in a short time than guests could plan individually, and wherever possible to share historical touring experiences not accessible to individual members of the public.

Over a period of more than one year, these themes are covered:

  • country houses
  • historic towns and cities
  • Fun Palaces: the history and architecture of the entertainment industry
  • Victorian England
  • Transports of Delight: waterways and railways

All programmes are led by Mike Higginbottom, and provide –

  • itineraries in advance, indicating how much walking, standing and stair-climbing involved
  • free admission where applicable for card-carrying members of English Heritage, National Trust, Art Fund and Friends of the Historic Houses Association
  • detailed, illustrated historical visit-notes handbook to each tour
  • first-night pre-dinner introductory presentation
  • group-size is limited to a maximum of twenty-five, and single rooms are available at no extra cost.
