In the early sixteenth century, bold believers stood firm against those who sought to stop the spread of the gospel in England. Join us as we explore God’s work during the English Reformation on our 7-day study tour across London, Cambridge, Windsor, and Oxford. We’ll visit the site of the White Horse Inn, tour the beautiful Westminster Abbey and other iconic locations, stroll through cobblestone streets, and enjoy the charming villages of the English countryside. With Drs. Steven Lawson and Stephen Nichols, we’ll travel back in time and walk through history, discovering the heroism, bravery, and great legacy of the English Reformers.

About Ligonier Tours

One of the best ways you can learn about a person or even an event is being there—to be on site. We can certainly learn from reading and studying. We can even create the scene in our mind’s eye. But nothing brings a person or an event to life like being there. Ligonier Tours takes you to the places where significant events occurred, events that have shaped history. You can literally walk in the footsteps of our heroes of the past, of Luther, of Calvin, of Jonathan Edwards. You will meet these figures in ways you have never met them before.

Ligonier’s teaching fellows and other ministry leaders serve as your guides as you explore these important sites. On these tours, you’ll have time with these trusted teachers over a meal or at the sites along the journey. You will also have rich times of fellowship with your fellow travelers, meeting kindred spirits and making friendships.

Ligonier Tours brings the past to life, they serve to encourage us as disciples in our own day, and they offer us reminders that we are not alone, but that we are on our pilgrim journey together.
