The Tudors at Windsor Castle

Children discover why Windsor Castle was a popular royal residence at the time of the Tudor monarchs and learn about the splendour of the Tudor Court. In this interactive talk and handling session we investigate: why Henry VIII married six times; who is buried with him in St George’s Chapel; and what it felt like to wear pieces of an enormous suit of armour that was made for him in 1540.
