Henry to Mary: A Religious Rollercoaster

About this session

Key Stage 3 | Subject: History | Topics: Tudors | Session Type: Route-based

In the Tudor period, religion was a key issue: the country was catholic then protestant, back to catholic, and the rollercoaster of religious changes led to widespread confusion and turmoil.

At Hampton Court Palace students will explore primary evidence and analyse the changes of monarch’s religion to their subjects in one of the key locations where religious and political decisions were made.
