Explore the Legacy of the Ottomans
The newly established Ottomans in Britain tour was created after much research about a time when the Turkish series Ertugrul captivated the Muslims from around the world.
Without a doubt, the Ottomans were the longest Caliphate, lasting more than 600 years. During this time, many accomplishments were made that brought it to be recognized 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, objects such as an Ottoman cannon, a stolen Chelengk, and a painting, and discover who was the most important Ottoman to visit Britain in the 1800s.
