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.

He really looks identical to Anthony Joshua—with Prince Harry.
Dan even has a lower eye-level.

@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.
Dream said on 10/Feb/19
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.

Looks a strong 6ft5

@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.

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...
said on 4/Nov/18
Yeah, I certainly see 6’5.25” in this pic as well
And Dan is only wearing very light slippers. If he’s not a legit 6’5”, then I’d be damned. Very similar to Bo Burnham and Wladimir Klitschko.

Rob, I think an upgrade to 6'5.25" is in order?
Dan does make those doors looks average. Maybe it's the camera, but he definitely looks an easy 6'5" guy.
There is a chance he might measure that range.

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.

@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

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?
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.

@ Arch don’t forget his grandad was 6’4 in the 19th century!

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.

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.
