About us

A company offering expertly-led historical tours for groups of two to twenty adults, staying in high-end accommodation and using air-conditioned minibuses or coaches. City tours involve a large amount of travel by foot.

Roundhouse History Tours is the creation of Dr Peter Edwards and offers a range of tailor-made, historical tours over a wide range of periods which draw upon 25 years of research, lecturing and teaching experience. Roundhouse tours offer clients a unique experience when engaging with History. You will be taken to visit key sites to view History in the context of its landscape, frequently going off the beaten track to view historical events from unusual and exciting perspectives. Dr Edwards’ wealth of teaching and lecturing experience allows him to devise bespoke itineraries to encompass all levels of interest.

Of most immediate interest to visitors to York is “The Seven Ages of York: From the Romans to the Edwardians”. This tour is based in York from a Monday afternoon until a Friday lunchtime and looks at specific sites related to the Romans, Vikings, Normans, Wars of the Roses, Tudors, Civil War and Edwardians. Each site forms the backdrop to an engagement with the ways in which York was influenced by different groups of settlers, monarchies and great events. There is also plenty of time in the schedule for exploring the city individually, eating out and sampling the range of entertainments on offer in the city. This is a complete city break with a large historical input.

Other Roundhouse themed tours are focused on the North of England (especially Yorkshire), North Wales, France, Belgium, Holland Germany and Poland.
