We are really pleased to share details of our 2019 historic tour to Poland from 15-20 May 2019. Following the success of previous trips to Berlin and the battlefields of Normandy we will be taking in some of the most significant historic sites in Poland. 

The five night tour will begin in Gdansk (Danzig) where the Second World War started and where the Solidarity Trade Union signalled the beginning of the end of the Cold War. We will then make our way to the former East Prussia - Malbork, which was the original HQ of the Teutonic Knights before taking in the Wolf's Lair (Wolfschanze) where Hitler spent the majority of his time during the war and is the site of the Stauffenberg Bomb Plot of July 1944. The final two days of our tour will be spent in Warsaw where we will visit the exhibitions honouring the victims of the Warsaw Ghetto (1943) and the Warsaw Uprising (1944).

This is a unique itinerary which has been put together for us by Alan Midgley, former Head of History at Oundle (1970 - 97), who will also be serving as our expert guide.
