    Knole Revisited & The Tudors in Love: Featuring Julie Milner and Sarah Gristwood

    In this episode of The Tudor History & Travel Show, I'm joined by Julie Milner, tour and house guide at Knole House in Kent. A grand and impressive house, Knole is remarkably well preserved, with some significant Tudor connections. Join me as I take a tour of the house, discovering how six centuries of history have shaped what we see today. There is a show notes page associated with this podcast. If you wish to view those, follow this link.


    I also had the pleasure of meeting with the author, Sarah Gristwood, in the Leicester Gallery at Knole. We shared an enlightening conversation about courtly love and the Tudors and how this medieval idea still shapes our ideals of love today as she tells us about her new book, The Tudors in Love: The Courtly Code Behind the Last Medieval Dynasty.

    In Search of Otford Palace: Rivalry, Glory and Ruin with Nick Rushby

    In Search of Otford Palace: Rivalry, Glory and Ruin with Nick Rushby

    In this episode of The Tudor History & Travel Show, I welcome Nick Rushby, Secretary of the Archbishop’s Palace Conservation Trust. I chat to Nick about Otford Palace as we uncover its history, why it fell into disrepair, and discover what steps are being taken to preserve its heritage for future generations. As we take a tour of what remains of Otford Palace today, we travel back in time to imagine just how magnificent Otford was at its zenith. Aggrandised to become the most splendid residence of the Archbishop of Canterbury, this sprawling manor house welcomed some of the most recognisable names in history.

    BOLEYN: The Musical & An Audience with Jessy Tomsko

    BOLEYN: The Musical & An Audience with Jessy Tomsko

    This extra special episode of The Tudor History & Travel Show takes us into the world of musical theatre! I'm joined by the supremely talented Jessy Tomsko as she tells us about her new musical 'Boleyn'. Combining Jessy's love of history and music, 'Boleyn' tells Anne Boleyn's story, with Anne as the central protagonist.  Jessy shares her spooky inspiration for conceiving the idea for 'Boleyn' and the creative process behind bringing it into being. She also performs three songs in this exclusive performance for The Tudor History & Travel Show listeners. I was hugely privileged to get an early insight into the wonderful music and lyrics coming our way that so perfectly captures Anne's spirit. I'm delighted I can share it with you in this episode, which is one of my personal favourites to date.

In love with this podcast 🥰🏰

SO happy I had found this podcast to fulfill all my castle fantasy! Visited Windsor Castle n Hampton Palace in the past and can’t wait to be back to UK in the near future to explore more!

Great Tudor podcast!

I love this podcast. She is so knowledgeable, delivers it in a very easy to understand manner. Some podcasters talk too quickly and aren’t as organized with their subjects. She really brings the Tudor world to life! When this pandemic is over, she will be the one I contact to help me with my trip!
