Listen to the Podcast

In this episode of the Historic Royal Palaces podcast, we’ll be joining Assistant Curator Alfred Hawkins in the Chapel of St Peter Ad Vincula.

As the burial place of Anne Boleyn, the Chapel Royal holds a special place to many history fans, but there is so much more to this community place of worship. Alfred reveals that the myths of history can be just as important as the truth.
