Anne Boleyn Experience Day 4 – Tower of London

The Anne Boleyn Experience Day 4 tied in with the anniversary of the execution of Queen Anne Boleyn on 19th May 1536 and it was a fitting day to spend at the Tower of London and to be staying at Hever Castle, the Boleyn family home.

On arrival at the Tower of London, we split into two groups and were then guided around the Tower by two fantastic Blue Badge Guides. After that, we had free time to grab lunch, see the White Tower, Beauchamp Tower, shop etc. Most of us also watched the performance on the South Lawn called "The Last Days of Anne Boleyn", which was excellent. I'll tell you more when I get home. We also laid roses with a card on the glass memorial. I decided to do this rather than have a Yeoman Warder lay them on Anne's tile because I wanted tourists who didn't know the importance of the date to see them and read it.

Our final evening was spent at a lovely local pub, The Wheatsheaf, which was once one of Henry VIII's hunting lodges, and then we returned to Hever to pack and socialise.

This tour has been a truly magical experience and I feel very blessed and honoured to have spent the last few days with such lovely people. We talked Tudor so much that I have lost my voice! I've had a blast!

We have a tour in September and are planning the next Anne Boleyn Experience - see
