An after-hours tour exploring the LGBT+ history of Hampton Court Palace
Join us for an evening tour of Hampton Court Palace exploring how queer lives lived in the royal court have influenced its art, architecture and the politics played out here.
Discover how same-sex loves from ancient Greece and Rome inspired the art treasures on display, the surprising gender fluidity and shocking escapades from the Tudor, Stuart and Georgian courts – and the 20th century residents persecuted for their sexuality. These stories will show that just because something was illegal, it doesn’t mean it wasn’t happening!
Tours will last approximately 90 minutes and will include multiple locations throughout the palace.
