The Tudor Travel Guide

Your Visitor's Companion to the Aristocratic Houses of the Sixteenth Century

Tudor travel guide

Today marks the launch of a brand new adventure here at The Tudor Travel Guide. It’s an adventure that I know you are going to love, because today we are launching the first in a whole series of travel guides, specifically designed to help you plan your next Tudor voyage of discovery.


Each brochure will outline a suggested weekend itinerary, all centred around places which have a strong association with the Tudor era. Taking one county at a time, we will highlight three of our top places to visit; houses, castles, manors or palaces. Some very well known, others less so.

Places to visit on your long weekend itinerary as part of the Tudor Travel Guide’s ‘A Tudor Weekend Away…in Kent’



Each location will have a dedicated entry describing briefly the history of the place, emphasising the events, or characters, that connect it with Tudor history. There will be a guided tour of the relevant parts of the location in question, drawing your attention to all the ‘must sees’, whilst highlighting the way in which the property would have appeared, or been used, in the sixteenth century. Links to visitor information will direct you to the nitty gritty of how to plan your trip.


For those of you who like to get out into the great outdoors and walk as a way of taking in your history, one ‘historic walk’ in included, alongside two recommendations for places to stay; one luxury, one luxury for less.

A Tudor Weekend Away…in Kent


The first edition focuses on Kent, and has a strong Boleyn theme running through it. We will visit Pashley Manor, Hever Castle and Penshurst Place. We will take a walk through the Eden Valley from Hever to Penshurst (should you wish to do so) and relax at night in our place of rest, either watching dusk settle across our private idyll at Hever, or snuggling up in our lovingly restored, 300 year-old barn conversion in the heart of the Kent countryside.


So, if you love Tudor history and you want to plan your next trip, but perhaps are unsure of the area, or the best Tudor locations to visit – relax! Here is a two / three day itinerary already at your fingertips.


The only question you now need to decide on is, ‘When do I go?’

    I was wondering if you could tell me if the bed in the King Henry VII and VIII that was recently discovered and displayed in the Tudor bedroom at Hever Castle was indeed the very same bed or was it a later piece or reproduction?

    I truly enjoy all your videos and sites!! 🥰

      Hi Karen, How lovely to hear from you. So, I think you are talking about the marriage bed of Elizabeth of York and Henry VII. Yes, it is authentic. Here is a link to the video made by Ian (who found it) and Jonathan Foyle who researched it
