The Tudor Society

The Executed Queens Tour

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!

    Hello! Claire! Did you see the spirits of H and A at Heaver?

    I wanted to ask, did Anne of Cleves make any changes to Hever when she lived there? I know she sort of went from house to house, and seemed to spend most of her time at Richmond? Can the stewards of the castle point out any difference/changes? Thanks. Michelle t
