UK by Peter Sommer Travels

Our new tours in the UK are the result of several years of intense work by our dedicated in-house team of archaeologists and historians. Although Peter Sommer Travels is justly famed for our tours in the Mediterranean, each of the core members of our company studied and trained in the history and archaeology of the ancient world in the British Isles, and many of our first encounters with the ancient world were made here. From our base in Monmouthshire we have travelled the length and breadth of these island nations, and are hugely excited at the prospect of introducing you to the wonderful archaeological and historical sites across these lands, the superb hotels, and the delicious food

Although Peter Sommer Travels is justly famed for our tours in the Mediterranean, each of the core members of our company studied and trained in the history and archaeology of the ancient world in the British Isles, and many of our first encounters with the ancient world were made here. From our base in Monmouthshire we have travelled the length and breadth of these island nations, and are hugely excited at the prospect of introducing you to the wonderful archaeological and historical sites across these lands, the superb hotels, and the delicious food and drink on offer from award-winning local producers.

Bringing together all of the elements that have made our Exploring tours so popular in Greece and Italy, these tours will be the perfect introduction to these lands, whether you have been a regular visitor, or will be travelling here for the first time.

If you are interested in making use of our experience and knowledge of these regions, but the dates of our tours do not match with your travel plans, please contact our office. As with all of our tours, we are able to customise and adapt our itineraries to create bespoke trips to fit around your own schedule. We hope to see you all soon on one of these wonderful tours, and what better way to start than in England with an incredible introduction to the most famous Roman monument in the British Isles, led by historian Paul Beston and Peter Sommer himself?

Join us on an exploration of the raw beauty and richly-layered history of this most distinctive English region. Few areas so large come to be defined by a single work of man, but the Wall Country has had a special character since the Romans first set this great work in trail over field, hill, crag and river nearly two thousand years ago.

Our first Welsh tour tells the unique story of south and west Wales, lands with a long and complex history of invasion, accommodation, resistance and conquest, through all of which distinct local forms of power, culture, religion and dialect persisted.
