About Ye Olde England Tours

Ye Olde England Tours Working Copy

Ye Olde England Tours is our privately owned and operated business. We have lived in Southern England since 1982 and have a comprehensive knowledge of this beautiful area and its fascinating history. We are committed to providing a professional, courteous and knowledgeable service and have no driving convictions. Our cars are very comfortable and fully insured. We specialise in day tours from the London area to surrounding historical, cultural and tourist sights.

Stephen Liddell has travelled extensively through 21 European nations as well as throughout North Africa and the Middle-East.   Stephen has organised holidays and tours in several countries outside of the U.K. for 15 years and travels extensively throughout the whole of the U.K. having organised guided tours to dozens of historic sites and visited hundreds more. With both a Bachelors and a Masters Degree in History, you can be sure you won’t miss a thing.

Stephen has also written a number of history related books and has three #1 best-sellers including Secret Gardens of the City of London which is based on not just our most popular tour but also Viator/Trip Advisors #1 ‘authentic London experience’

We can create themed tours depending on your interests such as to the country homes of great Prime Ministers such as Churchill and Disraeli or to magnificent palaces such as Blenheim or Highclere, scene of television’s Downton Abbey.  If medieval England is more to your liking, then tours of many castles are possible such as at Windsor or Warwick, a castle well-suited to combining with a trip to Shakespeare sites at Stratford Upon Avon.  We also have an unmatched wealth of beautiful churches and Cathedrals or beautiful cities such as Oxford, Cambridge, Ely and the Roman city of St. Albans with its magnificent Abbey, ancient pubs and markets and Roman ruins.  Our history and sites go back much further than that though with Stonehenge being just one of hundreds of prehistoric attractions.

Every visitor is special to us and our prime motivating factor is to give you the best holiday possible.  Travel with us and experience good old fashioned British hospitality.

Ye Olde England Tours have been used by many corporate organisations as well as the British government, production crews for BBC and Netflix shows, the Commonwealth War Graves Commission, national and international TV news, BBC TV,  Comic Relief, BBC national and regional radio, LBC Radio, Harrods, Bloomberg TV, British and foreign military and the national newspapers but most of all by thousands of visitors from all over the world, every age and every background.

I’m putting out a little update, many will remember I was on the television and radio around the world in August on several occasions due to having no work since February and the British government excluding me from any support for the duration of the Coronavirus crisis.

From January 2020 until October 23rd 2020 my income has been only £490 and yet the government doesn’t care one bit despite the entirely obvious impact would have on anyone.

I’ve been asked by a few people to set up a donation page so that I may not be so reliant on food banks and help pay bills, let alone essential issues like my leaking roof or my broken door and window.

I’ve received over 4,000 messages of support since then, in fact pretty much the only people who haven’t offered to help are those responsible for my situation, the British government.

If you’d like to help, you have my sincere thanks and gratitude and you can click on the graphic below.

Alternatively you can make a donation through Paypal with my email address to send it to being stephenliddell@gmail.com

Following up from this I have since been on several national radio stations, newspapers and even been debated several times in the Houses of Parliament.
