Depart central London with guide and begin with a panoramic tour including sites associated with Henry VIII and Tudor England. Visit to Westminster Abbey, where Henry was crowned and where his children are buried. Afternoon visit to the Tower of London, where Anne Boleyn, Sir Thomas Moore, Catherine Howard and Lady Jane Grey were executed. See Henry VIII’s armour and the Crown Jewels. Transfer to hotel for overnight.

Depart London for a full day in Kent, affectionately known as the ‘Garden of England’. Visit Ightham Mote, a medieval moated manor house featuring typical Tudor décor. Continue to Penshurst Place, which Henry took from the Duke of Buckingham. Afternoon visit to the fairytale Hever Castle, with its moat, lake, maze and stunning gardens. It was the childhood home of Anne Boleyn and home to Anne of Cleves after her divorce. Return to London for overnight.

Morning visit to Windsor Castle, and an Official Royal Residence. It is here that both Henry VIII and Jane Seymour are buried. Afternoon transfer to Hampton Court Palace, once owned by Cardinal Wolsey but acquired by Henry VIII. See Henry’s State Apartments, the Chapel Royal, Great Hall, Privy Garden and the Royal Tennis Courts – tennis was a favourite game of Henry’s. Return to hotel for overnight.

Eltham Palace was the childhood home of Henry VIII – tour the medieval palace and see how it has been transformed into a striking Art Deco mansion, whilst still incorporating original features from when it was a Tudor Royal residence. Explore the acres of award-winning gardens. Afternoon will be spent in the Royal Borough of Greenwich, where Henry was born in 1491, and where his first child was born in 1516. He is well known for having established the Royal Navy. See the site where Palace of Palentia once was and visit the National Maritime Museum and the Cutty Sark. Return to hotel for overnight.

What Our Clients Say

I was very fortunate to be on their 70th and 75th D-Day celebration tours. The service and attention to details was exceptional. It was very moving to go back.

As a Jane Austen enthusiast, this tour was perfect - and the Jane Austen Festival in Bath was just fabulous to see!

Words fail me...The Downton Abbey was a perfectly wonderful travel experience! We did not know we would be the ONLY guests at the Abbey. When we realised how truly exclusive our tour was we were speechless! Surreal being there and actually meeting Lady Carnarvon.


A twin room has two separate beds, and a double room has one bed for two people to share. 

No, only breakfast is included. Your guide will suggest locations for lunch and there are restaurants within walking distance of the hotel for dinner.

The exact meeting location will be confirmed closer to the tour start date, but it will be in central London.
