Welcome

Explore. Dream. Discover. Please join us for a spectacular journey through England’s Storied Past. From Shakespeare to Harry Potter, Alice in Wonderland to Jack the Ripper, Cardinal Wolsey to Winston Churchill, walk with us in the Scepter’d Isle’s footpaths of history with New York Times bestselling novelist and Shakespearian scholar, Dr. Andrew A.J. Hartley.

This specially designed program offers you a behind-the-scenes tour of the reconstructed Globe Theatre (led by the education director), a private workshop with actors from the Royal Shakespeare Company, an evening walk in the footsteps of Jack the Ripper, and excursions to romantic yet haunting places, largely unfrequented by tourists, such as Kenilworth Castle and the Ancient White Horse of Uffington. Several private receptions, a garden party, and lectures by Professor Hartley and Oxford Professor Tiffany Stern make this a unique educational experience that will deepen your understanding of this history-rich country.

Don’t miss this opportunity to wander through England’s past on the roads less travelled. This trip is likely to sell out early, so make your reservations today. We hope that you will join us!

Sincerely,

Chancellor Philip L. and Lisa Lewis Dubois
