About The Tour
Find your own piece of history on this exciting metal detecting tour. Your expert British Tours guide will take you through some of the thousands of years of history of this island from the Saxons to the Romans to the Tudors to the Victorians as you travel through the stunning Chiltern hills, the backdrop to many a TV series and film, Midsommer Murders for example.
You will pass through quaint villages and historic towns and deep into the beautiful countryside to meet Metal Mickey, your metal detecting expert! Metal Mickey has been a detecting enthusiast since his mid-life crisis kicked in some 10 years ago and delights in sharing his passion for detecting with you. Here you quite literally delve into the past, searching the fields for historical artefacts. Finding and identifying your treasure is such a thrill!
After your detecting adventure, continue with your guide to a local historic inn, meet the locals and enjoy some fantastic pub grub and your favourite tipple. This is a wonderful tour for history buffs and those who want to get a proper taste of local life in the delightful countryside. Some of the artefacts that we have found with Metal Mickey can be seen in the pictures!
