Described as "being much better than tours in Istanbul" by a repeat traveller to Istanbul.

Newly established Ottomans in Britain tour created after much research at a time when the Turkish series Ertugrul captivates the Muslims from around the world. 

 

Without a doubt, the Ottomans, were the longest Caliphate, lasting more than 600 years. During this time many accomplishes were made, that brought it to be recognised by Britain as a powerful entity, and ally at times. On this tour, we will explore a legacy of the Ottomans with Britain drawing upon the connections that include, retracing Yusuf Agah Effendi in 1793, the Ottoman ambassador buried with full Islamic rites in London in 1800s, see objects such as an Ottoman cannon, a stolen Chelengk and paintings such as the Bellini's notable work of Sultan Mehmed II, the Conqueror and discover who was the most important Ottoman to visit Britain in the 1800s?
