Heritage of Industry
The Industrial Revolution was a period where changes in agriculture, manufacturing, mining, transport, and technology had a profound effect on the social, economic and cultural conditions of the times affecting everyone from the top to the bottom of society.

For more than 30 years Heritage of Industry has been the leading specialist in creating unique tours which allow you to explore the history of this revolution.

Industrial & Engineering Heritage tours
Taking a week or more to explore an area in depth, tours may visit industrial sites in the UK, Europe and the wider world led by key experts in the field who provide a wealth of information to tour members. We like to find sites not normally visited by other groups and have organised many tours which have informed, educated and entertained those who have joined us. In 2022 we are starting a new series of tours "The Lives of the Engineers" looking at the lives and works of the people who made the great changes to our world in the 18th & 19th centuries.

The Lives of the Engineers
The famous three volume work The Lives of the Engineers  written by Samuel Smiles and first published in the 1860s has inspired us over the years to learn more about these men and we now plan a series of tours which explore the lives and works of the great engineers who contributed so much to our lives from the 18th Century onwards.

Names like Brunel, Stephenson, Telford and Watt are well known to many but, apart from a few notable examples, their works and place in the history of engineering are less well known and there are more, less well known, who equally deserve to be celebrated.

Industrial Explorer & City Safari walking tours
City Safaris and Industrial Explorer Weekends take a look at a city's civic, commercial, industrial and transport legacy on foot, guided by one of our experts. In the UK, and on the near continent, we enjoy a long weekend viewing urban areas, civic and domestic buildings, former industrial sites, canals, trams and even street furniture from a different angle.
