bloody Mary, Elizabeth 1, Henry V111, Henry V111 walk, Lady Jane Greay, Sir Thomas More, Thomas Cromwell, Wolf Hall walk
There’s a lot more to the Tudors in London than the Tower. You’ll hear the story of the Tudors whilst seeing things from the history of Henry V111, Elizabeth, Bloody Mary, Lady Jane Grey, Thomas Cranmer, Thomas Cromwell, Thomas More and William Shakespeare. Heresy, treason, plots, trials, executions, book burnings, dissolution, reformation, annulment – it’s all here. You’ll see London’s oldest church, hospital and house, the only statue in London of Henry, a medieval monastery, guild halls and the old city wall. You’ll also see where the bodies are buried, literally.
And if you’re a Wolf Hall fan, we’ll show you Austin Friars, where Thomas Cromwell lived.
