Editor Rob: He still claims 6ft 4

I know but I feel he came just short of it peak. Definitely cleared 6ft3 though. 6ft3½ is my guess but I can push it to 6ft3¾. Nowadays he is looking under 6ft3 a lot. He never has good posture though so maybe can still stretch up to it?

He's definitely worth a page though. Been around for many years, holds the longest stint on Channel 4
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 12/Apr/23
Rob, could Jon Snow get a page?

Click Here not standing quite as tall as Dan and Peter
Click Here photo of him w/h Peter when they were younger (unsure of ground level)
Click Here w/h James Comey. Note he claims 6ft4 and describes Comey as 6ft9

I'm gonna say 6ft3½ range peak and now possibly dipping below 6ft3 at his age. Not convinced he was a full 6ft4 though especially after seeing that old photo of him with Peter. I think Peter in his prime could have been similar to Dan, arguably a bit over 6ft5?

Also it needs to be confirmed. Jon is Peter's first cousin NOT his brother, so that makes him Dan's first cousin once removed not his uncle

Rob, see him walking under the door here, Click Here Could the door be lower than a standard door or is he taller?
Editor Rob
No idea if that door is standard size, but when you add in flooring and shoes, a 6ft 3 guy is brushing some door frames.

In that picture with Dan Walker and Steve Redgrave, Snow makes the latter look 6’2” and makes the former 6’4” at best!
Hyper said on 30/Jan/21

I can easily buy this listing, if not almost as tall as Christian.

He honestly looks roughly similar to Lebron James, with Prince William, or sometimes, even taller at times, with camera angle.
Arch Stanton said on 22/Nov/20
Prince William is a bit further back there though but there and here with Dan Walker Click Here he arguably looks close to 6'6.
Canson said on 21/Nov/20
That’s a clear cut case as to whether or not he measures 6’5”. Question is how much above? I used to think Bo Burnham territory but maybe not quite. I’d could buy the listing however and 6’6” out of bed and 6’5.5 probably 2 or even 2-3 hours after waking
Hyper said on 20/Nov/20
*Not much different from Lebron James
Hyper said on 19/Nov/20
Rob, any thought on this picture with Prince William?

Click Here

Looks terrifyingly towering.

And it’s much different from someone like Lebron James.

I agree Snow is easily a strong 6’5” guy. I bet he will edge out Brock O’Hurn too!
Editor Rob
Can look well over 6ft 5 there
Dream said on 14/Jun/20
Actually, he does look more like Paul Rudd. Ooof. I can't discern the british accent!
Dream said on 14/Jun/20
I think he looks more like Henry Cavill, with his beard.

Height wise, he's a perfect Superman. Maybe slightly too tall, but it's fine. a 6'7" Superman would be a bit too tall.
Dream said on 14/Jun/20
I think he resembles a little of Henry Cavill.

This guy would be more physically convincing than Cavill
Nik Ashton said on 15/Nov/19
@ Dream - That’s interesting, thanks!
Dream said on 13/Nov/19

Dan would honestly make a perfect Superman, not just his height. His history documents, along with tv reporting, does him justice. Plus, he kinda looks like Henry Cavill, with the beard.
Dream said on 10/Nov/19

There are a few photos of Dan Snow and Dan Walker. Snow looked visibly taller.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 4/Nov/19
Rob, could his dad have been the same range in his prime and now maybe 6ft4?
Editor Rob
Well he claimed 6ft 5, and likely lost 1-2 inches by now.
Nik Ashton said on 5/Oct/19
His 6’5” claim is interesting!
Dream said on 25/Sep/19
@Chris @Christian

Actually, in the comics and DC's guidebook, Superman's height is supposedly 6'3".

I think someone like Dan Snow's height, would be fine for such. 6'5"-6'6" seems like an ideal height for someone to portray Superman, really. 6'4" is also fine, but 6'5"-6'6" works too.
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 20/Sep/19
Clark Kent (the character that turns into Superman) is listed at 6'5", so I don't see why a 6'5" actor is too tall to portray Superman. But the DC Fandom site lists him at 6'3" though, so I'm confused. Click Here)
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 18/Sep/19
6'5 is too tall for superman role. I think someone between 6'2-6'4 is a perfect height for superman. Henry Cavill look a little short to play man of steels. Brandon Routh is still one of the best superman beside Christopher Reeves.
Dream said on 6/Sep/19
Rob, this is me, but Dan kinda looks like Henry Cavill.

Perhaps, he would be an interesting choice for Superman. What do you think?
Editor Rob
If he was a good actor! But I wonder if they would ever cast somebody as tall as 6ft 5-6 range as superman in the future.
Dream said on 15/Jun/19

196.5325 cm is definitely arguable for Dan Snow. I really have a difficult time seeing him at 6’5” flat, let alone under it, especially how he compares to Anthony Joshua, with Andrew Flintoff, barefooted.

I’ll have to see more of Prime Peter.
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 14/Jun/19
Dream, Click Here Peter Snow had shrunk alot. Maybe peak 6'5 1/4 and 6'3 1/4 now look at Dan is closer to camera. Click Here better one here to compare look 1.75-2" shorter than Dan. But i think more chance Dan is like a candidate at 196.5cm i strongly feel it he look between both 6'5.25-6'5.5" so his dad might be 6'3.5" max or a bit under. Dan Walker the more i look at him he could be a guy holding better at 6'4 5/8 look between 6'4 1/2-3/4 range, i'm sure he could be close to 2cm under Snow.
Dream said on 11/Jun/19

I think Peter Snow could've been at least just over 6'5" at his youth, based on his very old age and how he stacks up with Dan Snow.

With Dan Snow, Peter Snow looks taller than Dan Walker.
Dream said on 10/Jun/19
Rob, any chance Dan Snow's dad (Peter Snow) could've been the same height as his son, in his youth? Even in his early 80's or very late 70's, he holds up extremely well with Dan Snow.
Editor Rob
Peter did claim to have been 6ft 5.
Dream said on 7/Jun/19

I really think Dan Snow could be 6’5 1/2”. Makes me wonder how tall his dad is because sometimes, Dan looks taller. Other times, Peter looks taller.
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 2/Jun/19
@Dream Yes he does look taller than Walker. I mean by 2cm maybe not as listed. Snow could be 6'5 1/2 a chance.
Dream said on 31/May/19

I agree Walker could be 6’4.5”. For Dan Snow, he’s much more of a stronger 6’5” than I initially thought, especially how he towers Andrew Flintoff, barefooted. With Flintoff, Dan Snow looks taller than Anthony Joshua. Snow is taller than Dan Walker and Ashley Banjo. Heck, a user here, has met Dan Snow and said he was extremely close to his height. The user said he was 197 cm.

The more I see of Dan Snow, the more it’s difficult to see him under 6’5”. I wouldn’t be surprised if he was 3/8 over 6’5”.

Makes me wonder how tall his dad (Peter Snow) is really.

Dan Snow still looks taller than Dan Walker. Snow’s head is clearly higher. His ears are higher, and he’s behind the camera. They’re wearing the same footwear. Also, Dan Snow looked taller than Ashley Banjo, in comparison.
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 29/May/19

Dan Snow can really look 6'5 1/2 but Dan Walker is really not 2" shorter more like 1.25" or near 1.5" because that picture Walker was standing behind Snow and there is another picture here Click Here Walker standing infront of Snow and they look to be around same height from top of head (discounted hair) since Dan Walker listed 6'4 3/4 then the most Dan Snow is as high as 6'5 1/2 but another saying is that Walker maybe 1/4 over listed so Snow is what Rob listed him here.
Dream said on 27/May/19
Rob, curiosity sake, how tall did Dan look next to Andrew Flintoff? I couldn't ever see Dan under 6'5" with Flintoff. They were both barefoot because they eventually compete in a swimming race.
Editor Rob
Could argue he looked 6ft 5.5
Dream said on 21/May/19
Oh look, Dan looks over 6’5” with 6’3.75” Andrew Freddie Flintoff at 4:45-4:50 seconds. — Click Here

Here’s Anthony Joshua with Andrew Freddie Flintoff (Yes, they have the same posture). — Click Here

Dan even looks taller than Anthony Joshua, by comparison, and he still had the lower eye level.

At this point, I have 99.3% confidence Dan Snow is easily this listing.
Dream said on 21/May/19

In that photo with Dan Snow, Prince Harry is lifting his foot up, gaining more height.

Here’s another shot of Dan Snow and Prince Harry, who has super thick hair.

Click Here

Dan definitely looks over 6’5” there.

Dan looks almost two inches taller than Dan Walker and comparison, looks taller than 6’5.25” listed Ashley Banjo.

I highly doubt Dan is under 6’5”.
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 20/May/19
Dream, i highly suspect that Kieran West was listed with shoes at 204cm and 201cm barefoot Click Here and i can believe Dan Snow is solid 6'5 but he didn't look over 6'4.5" with Prince Harry in this link - Click Here well we can see their feet but maybe because Harry is closer to camera. One thing is George Nash is not 6'4.75-6'5 range and probably strong 6'3.5" next to 6'2 Jodie Kidd Click Here Steve Redgrave was standing behind Dan Snow and he look 6'2 not 6'1. Matter of fact that 6'2 Jodie Kidd is equal amount shorter than Steve Redgrave just like George Nash look.
Dream said on 10/May/19
If Snow really was 6'4.75", then Anthony Joshua would be 6'5" flat at best, not to mention Steve Redgrave would be 6'3" flat and Dan Walker would be 6'3.5".
Dream said on 8/May/19

Dan Snow already look ‘not much shorter’ than Kieran West, who has several 204 cm listings. Snow also looked almost 2 inches taller than 6’4.75” Dan Walker. By comparison, Snow looks taller than Ashley’s Banjo.

Dan Snow makes 6’4” Steve Redgrave look 6’1” at best. He also looks taller than George Nash, who has several 6’5” and 195 cm listings.

Heck, with Prince Harry, Dan Snow also looks identical to Anthony Joshua.

Click Here

Dan even has a ‘lower eye level.’ He’s definitely not under 6’5” for sure.
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 6/May/19
Richard Osman will make Dan look like a weak 6'5. Not saying Dan is under 6'5.25" but Osman height has been delay for an upgrade by Rob.

@Rampage Indeed. He falls into the same category as Bo Burnham and Wladimir Klitschko. No doubt an super easy 6’5” guy.
Dream said on 29/Apr/19

Maybe not 6'5.75", but I definitely see 6'5.25" for sure. I think Ashley Banjo is slightly overlisted, after seeing Dan Walker and Ashley Banjo.

Dan Snow, on the other hand, easily looks over 6'5".
Editor Rob
It's probably fair giving him a fraction over 6ft 5
Dream said on 26/Apr/19
With 6’4.75” listed Dan Walker, Dan Snow looks easily taller than 6’5.25” Ashley Banjo.

Snow really does look an extremely strong 6’5”, like Bo Burnham and Wladimir Klitschko. Heck with Prince Harry, he looks identical to Anthony Joshua.

Is he a bit closer than dan and steve redgrave (who most would agree is 6ft 4 or near it)...he can certainly seem 6ft 5.5range
Dream said on 3/Apr/19
Actually Rob, what would you say the difference between Dan Snow and Anthony Joshua is—comparing them with Prince Harry.

I feel that Anthony Joshua’s high-eye level is throwing people off, but Dan Snow and AJ really look identical in height.

@Dream I take more look at Dan and he's like maybe 6'5 1/4 very strong 6'5. Bo Burnham def easily look like a taller guy and i having that figure of 6'5 3/4 for Bo.

With Prince Harry, Dan looks ‘roughly’ identical without Anthony Joshua.

Dan really does look a Strong 6’5”. I think he falls similar to Bo Burnham (another super strong 6’5”er).

He looks at least 6’5” with Prince Harry. He also looks generally huge with small houses, and that’s considering him wearing slippers.

A user here (who is supposedly 197 cm) has met Dan Snow and he’s confirm Dan is very close to his height.

@woodne If you’re 197 cm and you said Dan Snow is very close to your height, then an upgrade is in order.

Rob, actually, here's Dan Snow with 'Prince Harry.'

There are other pictures, but a lot of them are in a ridiculous camera angle that it wouldn't be fair to use them.

What do you think?

@Junior What do you think of Dan Snow in height?

I think he can be very similar to Bo Burnham, honestly.
Dream(5'9.5 said on 25/Dec/18
Rob, is Dan Snow the first 'Snow' on this website? LOOOL!

I'm kidding! In all seriousness, I can easily see a case for 6'5.25".

There's not many Snow's I can think of...

Dan does make those doors looks average. Maybe it's the camera, but he definitely looks an easy 6'5" guy.
Editor Rob
There is a chance he might measure that range.
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 15/Oct/18

I take it back. Actually I've met a few 6'4" flat guys that claim 6'6", even though it's rare. You often say that guys over 6'5" are mostly honest, but from my experiences, I've met more 6'5" guys that claim 6'6" than those who claim 6'5". Maybe that's not the case for you though.
Canson said on 5/Oct/18
@Christian: I’ve seen a 6’4 guy maybe once claim it. I could only tell because he had footwear advantage on me and I would’ve prob been slightly taller. He actually tried to tell me I was 6’6” too and I told him no way. He was a basketball player as well (so he said)
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 3/Oct/18
Him claiming 6'6" could mean he's likely around 6'5", as guys who claim 6'6" are often no less than about 6'5", though I've met some 6'4.5" guys that claimed 6'6". I've never seen a 6'4" or below guy claim it though.
Dream(5'9.5") said on 1/Oct/18
@Canson I agree that Dan Snow could be 6'5.25" like Bo Burnham and Bo Svenson!

Off-topic: Actually, I finally found that one picture of Bo Burnham and Owen Benjamin. Bo literally looks taller than Owen, which destroys the latter's 6'7" claim! Owen 'may' have had slightly worst posture, but it isn't that bad. Plus, Owen is closer to the camera than Bo is.

This speaks bad news of Owen's 6'7" claim! :P
Dream(5'9.5") said on 1/Oct/18
@Canson @Rob the Snow’s would be taller than the Skarsgards! 🤣🤣🤣🤣

I agree with @Canson! I would’ve thought Dan looked taller than 6’5”, based on his proportions, but I have to look at him more!
Canson said on 30/Sep/18
@Dream: this guy based on the pic above looks a legit 6’5” imho. He may fall into that category of Bo Burnham based on that pic
Dream(5'9.5 said on 30/Sep/18
Rob, in your opinion, who do you think would win a measurement showdown, Dan Snow or Jeremy Clarkson?

Also, who do you think, of the two, is a better television presenter?
Editor Rob
I think Dan looks taller, but he has better posture, proportions and age.

I'm sure at one time Dan did make a 6ft 6 claim. I've seen a lot more of Clarkson than Snow, so couldn't really say.

Incidentally his father Peter Snow claimed 6ft 5 too and once auditioned for Bond: "I'm 6ft 5in, and they [Bond producer] said they'd have to put the girls on soapboxes."

Peter's brother Jon Snow says he's 6ft 4 and people were always surprised.

Dan's grandfather was once described as 6ft 7.

A long line of Snow's.
Rick1 said on 29/Sep/18
@ Arch don’t forget his grandad was 6’4 in the 19th century!
secondrowback said on 29/Sep/18
@Arch Stanton
I've looked at lots of pics of Dan with his dad, Peter. It's a mixed bag really, sometimes Dan is taller, sometimes Peter is. Hard to tell footwear and Dan tends to slouch while Peter is usually military upright. My guess....solid 6'5 for Dan and Peter has dropped to 6'4 from his 6'5 peak. I had seen Dan listed 6'6 before he appeared here.
Agent Orange said on 29/Sep/18
Honest 6’5👍
Sandy Cowell said on 29/Sep/18
The Plantagenet era is also I incredibly interesting, so if anyone knows if Dan's historical knowledge covers that era, I'd love to know!
Bobby said on 28/Sep/18
He certainly looks 6'5 proportionally. I would even say a fraction over 6'5.
woodne said on 28/Sep/18
I've stood next to Dan and we had similar footwear and were almost exactly the same height as everyone commented, I'm 197cm.
Arch Stanton said on 28/Sep/18
Very tall genes in the Snow family, Dad Peter 6'5 as well and Jon 6'4. He certainly has that Cambridge uni rower type look about him, so he probably is about this height but I thought he looked a tad shorter than his dad even in older age.
Sandy Cowell said on 27/Sep/18
I wouldn't be at all surprised!

So Dan does history programmes? I seem to have been missing out! Can anyone tell me if he covers the Tudors and Stuarts?

Well, whatever, he gets six five!
Dream(5'9.5") said on 27/Sep/18
We're getting a lot more 6'5" guys, recently.

I have to look at this one though.
