The freedoms and rights British people enjoy today were not handed down to them from on high but were fought for by courageous men and women who dared to stand against the status quo. We begin by taking a trip back to Medieval London where Barons led by brave knights such as Simon de Montfort launched ferocious rebellions against a tyrannical King and would ultimately succeed in establishing the first Parliament. You will learn about the plucky peasants led by the eccentric priest, John Ball, who invaded London and torched the King's palace demanding to be freed from serfdom and the 16-year battle between monarchists and parliamentarians during the English Civil War and the Glorious Revolution of 1688. The tour will conclude in the shadow of the Parliament building where you will discover the incredible stories of the suffragettes and chartist heroes who fought for and won the right for women and the working classes to vote in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries
