The Tudors History Projects
Students will develop their understanding of the public dramas and private lives of Henry VIII, his wives and children in the world of the Tudor court through a series of hands-on educational workshops and explore locations that played an integral part of this period such as Hampton Court Palace and the Tower of London.
Hampton Court Palace saw use by three mid-Tudor kings and queens over a decade, all with very different aims and agendas.
“Helen was absolutely fantastic - she was always happy to help with any queries I had and was very prompt in her replies. I couldn't commend her highly enough.”
