In this special video, I talk about the four Tudor queens – Anne Boleyn, Catherine Howard, Lady Jane Grey and Mary, Queen of Scots – whose lives ended on the scaffold, and some of the places connected to them.
I find that by visiting places linked to historical people we get a special link to them. We can walk a little in their footsteps. We can look at things they knew, touch walls they touched… It’s special.
I can’t wait to visit these places and to have that connection with these fascinating women. I’m quite literally counting the days!
You can join me and Philippa on the Executed Queens Tour in July 2019. There are 4 places left! [Read More...]
As you probably know, the Tudor Society now runs Tudor history tours in conjunction with British History Tours. This year, we ran the Anne Boleyn Experience Tour in May and are running the Discover the Tudors Tour in September. The Anne Boleyn Experience was a wonderful tour and I (Claire) can’t wait for the September tour, I’m counting the days!
Anyway, we have just finalised the details for our 2019 tours and are giving you an advance preview of them and also the chance to book on them before they are released to the general public on Sunday. The Anne Boleyn Experience 2018 sold out in just a few days so do act quickly if you want to secure your place. The tours we are running are The Anne Boleyn Experience in May 2019 and The Executed Queens Tour in July 2019. I am so very excited about these – more opportunities to get my Tudor fix! We already have bookings for next year’s tours from some of those who went on our May tour so people definitely enjoyed it, which is lovely to know. [Read More...]

I posted about this new luxury Tudor tour last month but Philippa has just let me know that there are still some Early Bird tickets available (saving of £300 per person) so I wanted to let you know.
I’m really excited about this tour because it doesn’t just focus on the well-known London Tudor attractions, it also takes participants to Windsor, Hatfield, Stratford-upon-Avon, Kenilworth and Bosworth, all with private guided tours. One of my very favourite historians, Leanda de Lisle, has just confirmed that she’ll be speaking to our group too! [Read More...]
If you haven’t already heard, the Tudor Society has started offering Tudor history tours in association with British History Tours. We’re thrilled about this (any excuse for me to visit historic sites!). Our Anne Boleyn Experience Tour for May 2018 sold out quickly and now we’re offering a longer tour in September 2018: the Discover the Tudors Tour.
As the Tudor Society is involved in this tour, we are sharing the news here first and letting you know about the special Early Bird offer. The first 8 places are £2800 per person, instead of £3100, a saving of £300! The tour is from 16th to 24th September. [Read More...]
