ITINERARY:

Introduction

Henry VIII. No other king in history is more talked about, written about or argued about. Married six times, serial wife killer, and the main character in the most incredible historical soap-opera. He had a massive ego, a monstrous temper, and, in his own lifetime, was described as the most dangerous and cruel man in the world: ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, presenting the Tudor megalomaniac and England's most infamous king. But what of his children? We will also meet the Boy King, the Virgin Queen and Bloody Mary!

TOWER OF LONDON
We start by visiting the Tower of London for a personally-guided tour. Described by Shakespeare as 'The Slaughterhouse', the Tower is London's oldest building and a World Heritage site. This tour features the tragic tale of Henry’s second wife Anne Boleyn as its central theme. Also see the Crown Jewels, king of bling! And the famous Beefeaters, with costumes designed in Henry’s reign. Next, we take a driving tour of the London places identified with Henry’s great ‘Dissolution’ including Smithfield, Blackfriars and Westminster Abbey. Hear how he shut down the great monastic institutions and greedily benefitted from their wealth.
● Usually open daily.
● Admission payable on entry.
● Your guide will conduct the tour.

HAMPTON COURT
After lunch the tour heads for the world famous Hampton Court: 500 years of royal history in Britain’s greatest palace: the one that Henry VIII stole! Now it’s two palaces in one. Highlights include the authentic Tudor kitchens, the Great Hall and the Chapel Royal. There’s also an important art collection and the magnificent gardens featuring the world’s oldest maze for you to get lost in! On the way back discuss with your guide your own thoughts and theories on Henry, his life and his impact on history. You will be in good hands with our dedicated staff, so you can rest assured that you will be able to relax and enjoy this tour.

Pick-up/drop-off: You can be picked-up for your tour anywhere in the central London area, whether at your hotel, place of residence, or venue of your request. The same applies as a dropping-off point after the tour. Tours from London may use fastest routes.
