Virtual Tour - Tracing the Tudors: The real London of Wolf Hall, 27 April | Online Event | AllEvents.in Virtual Tour - Tracing the Tudors: The real London of Wolf Hall
Join me on this virtual tour to track down the locations that tell the stories behind the events of this most turbulent century.

About this Event

The political and personal machinations of the Tudor age were brought to life by Hilary Mantel's novels Wolf Hall, Bringing Up The Bodies (and their rightly garlanded adaption by the BBC) and the final instalment, The Mirror and the Light.

It was certainly one of the more turbulent periods in our history. Born out of the Wars of the Roses, it was a dynasty never far from conflict: the split with Rome, dissolution and creation of a new church; Mary’s vain (and bloody) attempts to restore the catholic faith; the looming threat of The Armada; and the tricky tightrope that all the leading protagonists had to walk to stay the right side of the executioner’s axe.

But it wasn't all about royalty and religion. The influx of land and money from the dissolution created systems of governance that were arguably the forerunner of the modern civil service and, amidst the turmoil, England created its own version of The Renaissance that included the birth of modern theatre in the hands of the likes of Shakespeare, Ben Jonson, Christopher Marlowe and the Burbages.

However, thanks to the 1666 Great Fire, physical traces of the age are hard to find in current day London. Unless, of course, you know where to look…

Join me to track down the locations that tell the stories behind the stories of Wolf Hall and the events of this most dramatic of centuries that changed England forever.

This is a live virtual tour hosted via Zoom video conferencing where your guide will give an illustrated presentation of the tour route with an accompanying talk. There will be opportunities for questions and interaction both during and after the virtual tour.

Some comments from tripadvisor reviews that guests were kind enough to post about this virtual tour:

"It was a welcome hour of education and diversion on a lockdown Tuesday afternoon! Good quality stuff and good value. Definitely will do another in the series."

"Really enjoyed "Tracing the Tudors Virtual Tour with Mark Rowland" it was very informative and I look forward to the next one!"

"A brilliant "tour" of Tudor London. Mark is obviously passionate about London's history and enthuses this to his customers excellently. Very enjoyable."
