Key Stage 3 | Subject: History | Topics: Stuarts | Session Type: Route-based
The year is 1688 and Britain has been invaded by a foreign prince. How did this Dutch invasion come to be known as the Glorious Revolution?
In this session students will place themselves in the shoes of the British public to investigate why they invited a foreigner to rule their country.
Students will discover how William of Orange’s arrival changed the face of British politics for centuries, and why Hampton Court was remodelled to rival the French palace of Versailles.
