About Stephen Liddell

I am a writer and traveller with a penchant for history and getting off the beaten track. With several books to my name including a #1 seller, I also write environmental, travel and history articles for magazines as well as freelance work.

I run my own private UK tours company (Ye Olde England Tours) with small, private and totally customisable guided tours run by myself!
