Legends of Agincourt Group Itinerary

 

King Henry V is most famously known for his victory over much larger French forces at Agincourt, a battle immortalised by William Shakespeare. The 'Legends of Agincourt’ tours cater for historical societies, the education market, or groups with a casual interest.

Explore the landscape into which Henry V was born, where he tested his military tactics, and from where he drew vital support for his campaign in France. Discover how that loyalty was rewarded, as Welsh nobles grew in wealth and status, as we move towards the birth of the Tudor dynasty.

Group Travel

Book a guided Agincourt Tour


Join a registered Wales Tour Guide for a special themed Agincourt Tour. On this tour we trace some evidence of who went to France from Monmouthshire and the legacy it left on the county. The places that we visit are beautiful and interesting in themselves, Tretower Court and Raglan Castle but we link them together to paint a picture of 1415 - but also a much more modern war -the Zulu wars which is also famous for its "band of brothers" at Rorke's Drift. We dive into the Military Museum at Brecon and Brecon Cathedral to be reminded of their sacrifice.
