Hidden History turns the streets you walk along into the museum you never knew existed!

Hidden History is a new way for you to engage with the past through combining historical research and engaging design to create an immersive historical journey for you to enjoy.

We combine original historical research and GPS technology to provide a unique way for you to explore the History of the United Kingdom (UK). Our dedicated team of historians, research each location and topic to uncover the real history behind the landmarks, locations and events that have shaped the world we live in. All of this is shared with you at either individual locations or through wider pieces explaining the full historical detail behind a subject.

Are mission is to give you the full story of what truly happened, not just a repeat of popular myths - we can promise you will find the real stories more emotive, powerful and inspiring than the myths – as well as giving you the capability to visit the locations where it all happened easily. We believe that by combing the story with the location together in this way gives you a unique way to connect with the past.

Hidden History also provides introductions and reviews of museums, galleries and historic attractions. As well as the 'big' museums, we also highlight museums and experiences that might not always be on the average tourist's radar. These places are incredible to visit, as they tend to give you a closer view of a period of time or a subject. They also they tend to be quitter with fewer visitors. It’s a win win! In the guides you will find everything you need to plan your day out from opening times all the way through to disability access.
