Welcome to Unique Tours of Britain. I am Michael and I operate historical custom built tours. I will also be your guide, helping you not only see the real Britain, as I like to call it, but also learn about the history behind it.

Since I was a young boy I have been fascinated by the varied history of my beautiful Britain. I wish now to share with you the special knowledge I have accumulated over many years.
