William Marshal Tours takes you on a journey to the medieval past.

 

William Marshal was one of the greatest knights who ever lived.

He started life with modest means, and rose through the ranks of Normans to become a wealthy landed knight and the 1st Earl of Pembroke. He served four Plantagenet Kings (Henry II, Henry the Younger, Richard the Lionheart & King John) and one powerful queen (Eleanor of Aquitaine). Loyal to a fault, he was well respected among his fellow barons for his diplomacy, strength of will, and prowess in war.

Join us as we travel back in time and walk in his footsteps. Along the way we will explore medieval castles and abbeys, and connect with local customs and traditions.
