Special interest tours

Hadrian’s Wall

Hadrian’s Wall stands as testimony to one of the Roman world’s greatest emperors.  Its many forts, milecastles, turrets and temples reveal much about the ancient world of the Romans 2000 years ago.  There’s so much to see along the Wall that every guided tour I do is personalised to suit each client’s specific interests and needs.  

‘Anna brought history to life in a personable and engaging way’




Sacred Landscapes

A guided tour around the enigmatic stone circles and megalithic monuments of the Eden Valley to understand how they relate to the landscape.  We visit Long Meg and her Daughters stone circle, wonder at the mysteries of Mayburgh Henge, discover remnants of an impressive ‘avenue’ of standing stones, and explore the gaunt ruins of Shap Abbey.

‘Anna struck just the right balance between enthusiasm and a deep knowledge of the sacred landscapes that we visited. She tailored the tour to meet my specific requirements yet also included monuments and sights that I didn’t even know existed, let alone thought to ask about’




Anna at Cuddy's Crags - one of the classic views of Hadrian's Wall

A Tale of Beatrix Potter

The inspiration for many of Beatrix’s much-loved children’s books was drawn from Cumbria.  On this full day guided tour, we follow in her footsteps, visiting sites that played a key part in the story of her life and understand how she came to be one of the most generous benefactors of the Lake District. This tour can be undertaken by car or electric bicycle.


In Cumbria and the Lake District, there are so many themes that could be enjoyed.  I’ve picked out three of my favourites here, but other special interest tours could cover themes such as Beatrix Potter, William Wordsworth, landscape interpretation, historic houses & gardens, maritime and industrial heritage, guided wildlife tours and many other subjects.  

If you are interested in a particular theme or type of guided tour, please get in touch so we can discuss your requirements in more detail.
