Tudor adventures with The Tudor Travel Guide Dr Sarah A. Morris

‘A Tudor Weekend Away…’

As a lover of Tudor history, I am sure one of your favourite things is to hit the road and explore some of your favourite Tudor properties. If you are from overseas, or simply not familiar with a certain area in the UK, it can be difficult to know how to make the most of your precious time away. Well, things are just about to get easier!

On the 1 September 2018, The Tudor Travel Guide will be launching the first in a series of mini-guide books, or brochures, which will pull together a long weekend itinerary, packed full of Tudor delights for you to enjoy.

There will be an outline agenda for your Tudor adventure, and then an in-depth article on the location in question, usually three in total. There may be a theme to the brochure, such as the Bolyens in the first edition, where we explore Tudor Kent.

Each article will give a little history of the property, before going onto lead you through house, bringing alive its sixteenth century glory by describing the likely layout of the rooms during the period, the key events which took place there, and of course highlighting areas, objects and artefacts to look out for.

For those who enjoy taking in their history from a slightly different angle, an ‘historic walk’ is included, which will be associated with at least one of the properties in question. Finally, taking the leg work out of searching for somewhere to stay, two hand-picked accommodation recommendations are included with each brochure; one luxury, one luxury for less.

As mentioned, the first edition focuses on properties in Kent, each with close ties to the Boleyn family; Hever Castle, Penshurst Place and Pashley Manor (not strictly in Kent but very close to the Kentish border!). The walk will take us from Hever to Penshurst and our accommodation suggestions are within a stone’s throw of both properties.

These mini-guides will be published quarterly in an online format, which you will be able to download in the comfort of your own home. In order to celebrate this new venture, I am giving away this brochure FREE exclusively to those subscribing to my blog, The Tudor Travel Guide, as a ‘thank you’ for being part of the community.

If you would like a free copy, head on over to the blog and subscribe. You can do so at any time and will receive your brochure on 1 September via email. (Make sure you white list all emails coming from The Tudor Travel Guide and sarah @
