Shout Out Sunday: The Tudor Travel Guide
There are so many amazing websites and facebook pages out there devoted to bringing Tudor history to life. I have learnt so much from these websites and they have been so valuable to me I really wanted to share them with you all. Each Sunday I am going to give a ‘Shout Out’ to one of my favourite website/facebook pages.
Today I’d like to give a shout out to The Tudor Travel Guide. Run by the very talented Dr Sarah Morris, the Tudor Travel Guide is the website for all things visiting Tudor locations. Sarah has spent countless days, weeks, months visiting Tudor related sights throughout England and compiling information about these sites.
Sarah has created a number of travel guides that will walk you through various Tudor locations, providing information on each place and providing details of what Tudor events happened at each place. Sarah has compiled booklets on such places as Sudeley Castle, Dover Castle, Hampton Court and Hever Castle, just to name a few! There are also fantastic ‘Weekend Away’ guides, providing Tudor related locations in different counties including Suffolk and London.
In addition, Sarah’s website provides lots of information about a wide range of Tudor personalities and places in short article form.
I have had the great pleasure of visiting Tattershall Castle, Grimsthorpe Castle and Windsor Castle with Sarah. It was such an incredible experience and it was wonderful to chat all things Tudor with such a knowledgeable and kind person.
Sarah is also co-author of ‘In the Footsteps of Anne Boleyn’ and ‘In the Footsteps of the Six Wives of Henry VIII’. These books are a fascinating walk through history – literally. The books provide details about Anne Boleyn and each of Henry VIII’s wives while detailing the places they lived, visited etc. and how to access those locations.
I love Sarah’s website, there’s so much to learn about Tudor history and to be able to walk in the footsteps of Tudor personalities – literally – it just amazing!
Please do stop by Sarah’s website!
