Introducing ‘The Tudor Travel Guide’


My name is Sarah Morris. I live here, in England, in the picturesque Oxfordshire countryside. I have been enthralled by the Tudors since I was a child, learning about them at school and spending many happy weekends and holidays touring historic properties with my parents.

In 2010, I began writing my first Tudor novel; Le Temps Viendra; a Novel of Anne Boleyn. This was published in 2012, followed closely thereafter by two non-fiction books; In the Footsteps of Anne Boleyn and In the Footsteps of the Six Wives of Henry VIII. I was also recently featured in A Tale of Two Sisters on Yesterday TV (UK Only), as the ‘Boleyn expert’, talking about the relationship between Anne and Mary Boleyn.

If you wish to learn more about my books, or to purchase them, click on the relevant book links on the right hand side of the page. This will take you through to Amazon UK. However, all books are available on Amazon US and other, major online retailers

Finally, check out the video above for a personal introduction to The Tudor Travel Guide, and what I hope this site will do for you in helping you follow your Tudor passions.

Do introduce yourself in the comments section below. It’s a great pleasure to build this community of Tudor time travellers!

    Hi Sarah. We are in a school just down the road from you and are currently studying the Tudors. We will be re-enacting Anne Boleyn’s trial in a ‘Case Reopened’. One of our parents pointed out your blog and we were wondering if we could get in touch with you or whether you’d like to visit. Look forward to hearing from you, Hannah
