The Executed Queens Tour – Day 1

I've been counting down to the Executed Queens Tour for weeks, or rather months, and finally, today, it was here.

I took a train bright and early up to London, from where I was staying with family in Sussex, to meet my co-leader Philippa for brunch at Victoria before we met up with the group. Then, we met with our lovely group and took our luxury coach - the leather seats were so comfy and Alan, the driver was so friendly and helpful - up to Worcestershire.

Nestled in the lush green countryside is Brockencote Hall, a stunning hotel with huge rooms that are exquisitely decorated (I could get used to this!), where we are staying for three nights. We had chance to freshen up and wander the grounds before welcome drinks (Prosecco or orange juice) and canapés, followed by a yummy buffet and our first talk of the tour, given by yours truly and on the subject of Anne Boleyn the Queen.

After a wonderful Q&A session, we went and sat out on the terrace to talk Tudor. I was in my element! Talking Tudor with like-minded people is so very good, and I loved every single minute of it. Then, it was time to return to our rooms - chamomile tea put ready, beds turned down and slippers put out - and for me to write this diary entry.

I know this is going to be a fabulous tour. The people are lovely and we have a shared passion. Find out more about our tours at https://www.britishhistorytours.com/
