About Philippa

Historian and Tour Organiser
Philippa Lacey Brewell lives in Central England and is well respected in her field as a historian and tour guide. She engages audiences with virtual tours and history holidays. She is the owner and founder of British History Tours, a tour company for those who love British History.


Philippa entertains thousands each week with her videos and stories from across the UK and British History. This ability to engage an audience, as well as being an expert in travelling the historical sites of the UK, makes her the perfect tour manager.

Her aim is to provide once in a lifetime experiences but which you'll want to repeat!

She began writing and speaking about travelling through Britain’s history in 2012 and hasn’t stopped since. She has the most animated face when talking about history (if you’ve seen her videos you’ll know!)

She also presents a weekly You Tube show called "This week in British History" and has written numerous history blogs as well as writing for BBC History Magazine, CityJet and FlyBe inflight magazines and for Tudor Life Magazine. You can also catch her over at The Tudor Society where members enjoy her 'Roving Reporter' reports from Tudor sites across the UK.
