Extraordinary Stories of Britain is a podcast packed with fun and informative tales from our island’s long and storied past.
Visiting little-known corners of history, shedding new light on familiar faces, uncovering unusual - and sometimes bizarre - facts along the way, this is the podcast for anglophiles, history buffs, and anyone interested in finding out more about the UK.
From killer queens to grime and punishment, from medieval medicine to celebrity cats, from secret sewers to pickled philosophers, we leave no historic stone unturned.
The pod is brought to you from the British Guild of Tourist Guides - the UK’s only national organisation for history and tourist guides. www.britainsbestguides.org
