Anne Boleyn Experience Tour 2018

British History Tours will soon be publicising its 2018 "Anne Boleyn Experience" tour which will run from 16-20 May 2018.

The tour will be led by Philippa Lacey Brewell of British History Tours and Claire Ridgway (me!) and will be based at Hever Castle, childhood home of Queen Anne Boleyn. Participants will stay in a luxury private wing at Hever Castle and there will be tours of the castle, Hampton Court Palace and the Tower of London. We'll actually be visiting the Tower of London on 19th May, the anniversary of Anne Boleyn's execution.

There will also be three expert speakers: author and creator of the Anne Boleyn Files website Claire Ridgway (me!), historian and author Gareth Russell, and historian and re-enactor Bess Chilver.

Philippa is still working on the tour page of her website to include details of the guest speakers and finer details, but I wanted to give Tudor Society members advance notice of the tour as spaces are limited and I know that some of you have mentioned about wanting to do a historical tour. You can find out more about the tour and how to book (there's an early bird book discount if you book and pay a deposit before 22nd September) at

I've led this tour in the past so I'm very excited about being involved again. I hope you can come!

Here's a short promotional video for the tour:

    I’m going and maybe Kristina too. Deposits to follow. Do you think that if we can’t make it ( I have multiple sclerosis) , that there might be a waiting list ?
