Join HRP Joint Chief Curators Lucy Worsley and Tracy Borman along with Jane Spooner, curator of buildings at the Tower of London, to explore the last days of Anne Boleyn.

This one-hour online talk, will explore Anne’s final moments and bring to life some of the now-lost buildings at the Tower the Queen would have known. 

Anne Boleyn is one of the most intriguing figures in British history.  The fascination with the life and, perhaps most especially, death of Anne Boleyn lives on.  The closest we can get to Anne today is by visiting the place in which she was both executed and laid to rest: the Tower of London. 

Register now for the event.

This event is free to join, but we ask you to consider making a donation of £10 or whatever you can afford.  

Historic Royal Palaces is a self-funding charity.  The closure of our six sites for four months following the Covid-19 pandemic has had a devastating impact on our finances. We would love you to show support for us by visiting. We have restricted the number of people allowed on site each day, so you will have the chance of seeing these wonderful places up close, without the usual crowds.

We look forward to you joining our online events.
