Henry VIII is known for his six wives and for breaking away from Rome and setting himself up as Head of the Church of England. Tudor England was a fascinating place and Henry was everything a king should be – handsome, richly dressed and a strapping figure who excelled at hunting and jousting.

Tour highlights include:

  • London, including Westminster Abbey, where Henry was crowned and where his children are buried; the remains of his Whitehall Palace; Westminster Hall and the Houses of Parliament; the Archbishop of Canterbury's London residence at Lambeth Palace; Temple Church, which Henry seized from the Knights Hospitaller and the remains of his birthplace.
  • The Tower of London, where Anne Boleyn, Sir Thomas Moore, Catherine Howard and Lady Jane Grey were executed. See Henry VIII's armour and the Crown Jewels.
  • Fairytale Hever Castle, with its moat, lake, maze and stunning gardens. Childhood home of Anne Boleyn and also home to Anne of Cleves after her divorce.
  • Penshurst Place, which Henry took from the Duke of Buckingham and Ightham Mote, a medieval moated manor house featuring typical Tudor décor.
  • Stunning Leeds Castle, surrounded by a lake and transformed by Henry into a royal palace for Catherine of Aragon.
  • Lewes and the remains of St Pancras Priory, destroyed by Henry during the Dissolution of the Monasteries and the Anne of Cleves House.
  • Hampton Court Palace, once owned by Cardinal Wolsey but acquired by Henry VIII. See Henry's State Apartments, the Chapel Royal, Great Hall and Privy Garden.
  • Windsor Castle, residence of the current Queen, where Henry VIII and Jane Seymour are buried.
  • Sudeley Castle in the Cotswolds, home to Queen Catherine Parr, Henry's last wife.
  • Stratford-upon-Avon to see William Shakespeare's birthplace and Anne Hathaway's Cottage and possibly a play by the Royal Shakespeare Company.
  • Bosworth Field, where Henry's father overthrew Richard III (whose remains were recently found under a car park in Leicester!) and Fotheringay, where Mary, Queen of Scots was executed.
  • A lavish medieval banquet, hosted by Henry VIII, in 15th century Hatfield House, where Elizabeth I spent much of her childhood.
