Trailblazers

Women at the Tower of London

Women at the Tower of London

Meet five female trailblazers who have each made a mark on the Tower's past and changed our shared stories far beyond its walls, although their names are hard to find in the history books. 

Join these incredible women for a fun, entertaining adventure as they set out to put this right. Can you help them get their stories in the guidebooks before the Tower closes for the day?

Ahead of your visit, find out more about some of the change-makers you will encounter including Tudor servant Catalina of Motril, Suffragette Leonora Cohen and Poet Phillis Wheatley.

Look out for these female trailblazers from the past and learn more about them as you go about your day.
