Overview

We explore palaces, cathedrals, churches, Henrician forts and seaside resorts in our first issue, taking us from North Yorkshire to Devon and Warwickshire to the Kent coast. We speak to Tracy Borman, historian, author and joint Chief Curator at Historic Royal Palaces, about her work with the palaces, her love of Tudor buildings and the ways in which a knowledge and understanding of the built environment influences her fiction, and non-fiction, writing.

In our regular feature, A Trip to Tudor….., Sarah Morris, the Tudor Travel Guide, takes us to Suffolk and its wealth of Tudor places to visit, eat at and stay in – perfect for those planning a weekend, or longer, away. In Living at Old Hall, Brigitte Webster tells us how she, and her husband, Tom, came to be living in their Tudor manor house in rural Norfolk, and in Last Place, Alison Weir reveals her favourite Tudor places.

All this, plus news, book listings and more…….
