There is also the option to get lost in historical dramas/series right in the comfort of your own living room.

Period & Historical Dramas to Watch on Netflix
This Netflix Original Series has you hooked from the start as it follows the political rivalries and romance of Queen Elizabeth II’s reign.
One of my favourite series, Downton Abbey is set in the 1920’s focussing on the lives of the British aristocratic Crawley family and their servants. And oh does the drama ensue!
Another Netflix Original Series, Narcos depicts the true stories of drug cartels and drug lord Pablo Escobar.
Call the Midwife
This is a period drama based in impoverished London in the 1950’s. It follows the lives of a new midwife and her colleagues at a nursing convent.
This fantasy romance series goes back in time not once, but twice. Set in 1945, it’s the story of an English combat nurse who is mysteriously swept back in time to 1743.
