The Tudors Tour

PRIVATE TUDORS TOUR – TYPICAL ITINERARY

INTRODUCTION
Your driver-guide will pick-you up from your central London hotel or place of residence at the specified time. We recommend 8:30am. The Private Tudors Tour then examines England’s most infamous king Henry VIII and his six (yes six!) wives. But what of his children? We will also cover the ‘Boy King’, ‘Bloody Mary’ and the ‘Virgin Queen’.

HENRY VIII
No other monarch in history is more talked about, written about or argued about. Married six times, Serial wife-killer. megalomaniac, massive ego, monstrous temper, and, in his own lifetime, described as the most dangerous and cruel man in the world.

TOWER OF LONDON
A personally guided tour of London’s oldest building. A World Heritage site described by Shakespeare as ‘The Slaughterhouse’. The tragic tale of Henry’s second wife Anne Boleyn is the central theme. Also see the famous Beefeaters and the Crown Jewels, king of bling!

REFORMATION
We take a driving tour of places identified with Henry’s great ‘Dissolution’ including Smithfield, Blackfriars and Westminster Abbey. Hear how he shut down the great monastic institutions and greedily profited from their wealth. Some argue this was a good thing, as the populace subsequently benefited from his lavish spending.

LUNCH
Your driver-guide will suggest appropriate lunch options on the day. Perhaps a tea-room,  restaurant or traditional pub. Alternatively, you may want to bring a pre-packed lunch or just grab a sandwich. It’s your tour, it’s your choice. (Note: the Private Tudors Tour price does not include food or refreshments).

HAMPTON COURT
A personally guided tour of the world’s finest surviving Tudor palace: the one that Henry VIII stole! Highlights include the authentic Tudor kitchens, Great Hall and Chapel Royal. With 500 years of royal history, magnificent gardens, and the world’s oldest maze for you to get lost in!
