Join us each weekend in April at Hampton Court Palace and meet the Tudors that made the court of Henry VIII tick.

Discover some of the roles that were required for the smooth operation of his palace, from Yeomen Guards and porters to daily waiters, junior courtiers, and kitchen staff.

Learn about the less famous roles that made up the Tudor court, the stories of the women and men that performed them, and find out if you would have been suited to a life at court in the 16th century.

Spot our Tudor staff spread throughout the palace and courtyards. Don’t be shy - come and ask them about the jobs that they would have done to make Henry VIII’s court function.
