Founded in 2014, History Bombs has established a reputation as one of the UK’s most innovative education companies.

We make accessible, well-informed and explosively entertaining history content to engage and inspire audiences of all ages.

We firmly believe in the educational and emotional value of learning through joyful experience. This core philosophy underpins all of our work.

Classroom is our award-winning online library of videos, flashcards, quizzes and teaching materials, designed by education experts for 11-16 year-olds.

Teachers and homeschoolers can link accounts with their students in order to assign lessons and review progress.

All of our syllabus-based videos are perfect lesson ‘starters’, as well as highly effective revision aids.


Our YouTube channel receives 400,000+ monthly views, with the majority of our audience in the UK and the USA.

Our iconic ‘One Take’ history videos have inspired children around the world to create their own performances based upon our videos.

We are raising money on Patreon to produce more ‘One Take’ videos. Patreon supporters can access exclusive behind-the-scenes content and join live Q & A’s with the cast and crew.
