Historic & Royal

The UK, Ireland, Paris and Normandy have a richly interwoven history spanning centuries of castles, dungeons and glittering society figures.

NoteWorthy can provide introductions to directors and curators at castles, palaces, museums, stately homes and châteaus, as well as arranging private tours.

Clients can explore Highclere Castle, the 300-room home of the 8th Earl and Countess of Carnarvon — more famously known as ‘Downton Abbey’ from the hit British TV series. They can get behind the glass barriers of the untouched Churchill War Rooms, wander Prince Charles’ garden at Highgrove, and dine in the Orangery at Kensington Palace. In France, scale the iconic Eiffel Tower and pace the D-Day beaches of Normandy, sample the finest French cuisine, or marvel at the dazzling Hall of Mirrors in Versailles, once the seat of France’s Sun King, Louis XIV.

Our award-winning guides deliver informative, entertaining commentary that brings history to life, catapulting you into Louis XIV of France’s figurative red-heeled shoes, or the upstairs-downstairs experience of life in an English castle.
