Description

The ideal tour for those interested in Britain's power and politics, amidst the uncertainty following the pivotal 2016 vote. This group walking tour will take you through London's unmissable attractions, parks and finest Royal sites, as you uncover Britain's traditional past and uncertain future.

* Explore the heart of London’s **parliamentary district** 
* Uncover how Brexit has its roots in the **British Empire** 
* Discuss the lead-up to the **EU referendum**of June 2016 and the social discontent since 
* Question Britain's status in an increasingly **uncertain** environment 
* Evaluate the possible **outcomes** regarding Britain leaving the EU

Since the 23rd June 2016 referendum - where 51.9 **percent** voted to leave and 48.1 **percent** voted to remain - Brexit has remained a contentious and confusing topic. Statistically, conflicted votes were generationally and demographically divided, with Scotland and Northern Ireland predominantly voting to remain, whilst England and Wales voted to leave. Regardless of the contradictory opinions regarding Britain's relationship to the European Union, one thing is certain- nobody really knows what the consequences of the Brexit deal will be.

**Britain's History** 
The narration and historiography of the British Empire is complex, multifaceted, and continually evolving. At its peak, the British Empire was the largest empire that the world has ever known- covering one quarter of the earth, and governing over one fifth of its population. The consequences of this imperial state were far-reaching, and still steer Britain's position in the 21st century. Uncover the nuances of the British Empire, as you navigate through the history of British royalty with your guide, passing timeless architectural landmarks such as Buckingham Palace and Westminster Abbey.

**Britain's Future** 
The links and debates regarding the British Empire and Brexit are extensive. Whilst some argue that Brexit can be seen as Empire 2.0, others attest that Brexit being a result of imperial nostalgia is a myth. Irregardless of what you believe, it is unquestionable that both the British Empire and Brexit are vital regarding Britain's global position in the 21st century. Your guide will therefore invite you to dwell on the past, before you examine Britain's uncertain future; forming a political narrative where the intricacies of both Empire and Brexit entangle.
