About Us

About Us

At Whitecroft Traditional Tours, we want to whisk you away to a different time. Each of our tours is created around a main theme, whether that’s exploring a specific location, author, craft or tradition, allowing us to immerse you in that experience.

Our Tutors are experts in their field, and we carefully choose them not just for their knowledge, but their ability to bring that knowledge to life. We also often include exclusive experiences, including private viewings of stately homes and historical landmarks.

On every tour I’m delighted to see new faces and welcome back old friends as we embark on a new adventure through traditional British history and culture - I look forward to seeing you there!


Customer Reviews

A Whitecroft tour is no ordinary tour….in fact it is not like a tour at all…..more like taking amazing day trips with a friend! Imagine unpacking your bags just once only where you will stay in a unique and historical location for the entire tour……no repacking each morning - bliss! Wake to a five star breakfast with a small group of soon to be friends as you wonder what the day will bring. The coach awaits you to take you to places that have been opened just for you….and maybe even the Lord and Lady of the Manor will show you around and make you a cup of tea! Each day ends with fine wine and dinner and all the time being cared for and treated like a friend……and not forgetting the unexpected surprises along the way! Lifelong memories like this will live with you forever

I had an amazing time on the Whitecroft 2017 tour! Bath is amazing! I learnt so much and came home truly inspired!
- Mooneen Clarke
Such a cliche but truly a trip of a lifetime. Great people, beautiful places, gorgeous food and of course everything Jane. My only regret is that I can't do it again next year. Love love love it.
- Katy Law
I had the most amazing time. This was definitely a trip of a lifetime. The places we went, the food, the company, everything was first class. Helen, Jane and Katrina are a class act. I wish I was going again in 2018
- Kathy Condo
I can recommend the Jane Austen tour to anyone thinking about it! I had a fantastic time and I'm very keen to do the Scotland tour in 2019.
