Visitor's Companion to Tudor England Summary


A Visitor's Companion to Tudor England by Suzannah Lipscomb

For the armchair traveller or those looking for inspiration for a day out, The Visitor's Companion to Tudor England takes you to palaces, castles, theatres and abbeys to uncover the stories behind Tudor England. Susannah Lipscomb visits over fifty historic Tudor sights, from the famous palace at Hampton Court where dangerous court intrigue was rife, to less well-known houses, such as Anne Boleyn's childhood home at Hever Castle or Tutbury Castle where Mary Queen of Scots was imprisoned. In the corridors of power and the courtyards of country houses we meet the passionate but tragic Kateryn Parr, Henry VIII's last wife, Lady Jane Grey the nine-day queen, and hear how Sir Walter Raleigh planned his trip to the New World. Through the places that defined them, this lively and engaging book reveals the rich history of the Tudors and paints a vivid and captivating picture of what it would have been like to live in Tudor England.

Visitor's Companion to Tudor England Reviews


"A genuinely useful and discriminating guide for all Tudor fans. Full of fascinating true stories... it helps us see the world as the Tudors must have seen it" -- Hilary Mantel
"Lipscomb is an eloquent tour-guide, and each of her 50 destinations allows her deftly to unfold a different chapter of Tudor history ... As a pocket-guide to the dynasty of brutes, this is as good as it gets" * Spectator *
