New Tudors & Shakespeare Walk

The success of Wolf Hall and Bring Up The Bodies has led us to offer two routes for our Tudors’ and Shakespeare’s London walk. You can still do our usual route finishing south of the river in Shakespeare’s Southwark, which also has some Henry & Elizabeth history in it, or if you’re a fan of the Hilary Mantel books or simply prefer a shorter walk, let us know and we can if you wish show you where Thomas Cromwell’s Austin Friars palace stood. 125 more words

Hilary Mantel's 'Bring Up the Bodies'

“It is no small enterprise, to bring down a queen of England.”

Hide Your Workings: The Interiority of Thomas Cromwell


Wolf Hall is the first instalment in Hilary Mantel’s as-yet unfinished trilogy dealing with the rise and fall of Thomas Cromwell in Henry VIII’s court. It’s a detailed, highly-fictionalised account of Cromwell’s rise from a blacksmith’s son to the king’s right-hand man, and the time between spent as Wolsey’s man before the cardinal’s fall.  1,197 more words
