On the morning of 19 May 1536, a French blade stilled the heart of an English queen. Her name was Anne Boleyn and her story has made an indelible mark on history. This book will take you through stately homes, castles, chapels and artefacts with a connection to Anne. Explore Hever Castle, Anne's childhood home where two breathtaking Books of Hours both signed and inscribed by Anne Boleyn herself are housed; visit Thornbury Castle where Henry VIII and Anne stayed during their 1535 royal progress and see the octagonal bedchamber where they slept; stand in the very room in Windsor Castle where Anne was made Marquis of Pembroke. Each location is covered by an accessible and informative narrative, which unearths the untold stories and documents the artefacts. Accompanied by an extensive range of images, including photographs, floor plans and sketches, this book brings the sixteenth century vividly to life - and takes you on your own personal and compelling journey in the footsteps of Anne Boleyn.… (més)

In The Footsteps of Anne Boleyn by Sarah Morris and Natalie Grueninger caught my eye as it combined my love of visiting old buildings with an ever more growing interest in Tudor history. (To be fair, the book had already caught my eye through facebook and twitter, but the sight of author Sarah Morris dressed as Anne Boleyn to sell the book at an open day at Bramshill meant I couldn’t resist buying it!) The authors have developed the wonderful idea of following the trail of Anne Boleyn’s life through the various buildings she lived in and visited from her childhood home, through her time in France and onto her travels with Henry VIII’s Court. It is fascinating to follow the rise and fall of Anne Boleyn in connection to the places the events occurred in.

Unfortunately many of the buildings Anne visited are no longer standing, but the authors do a wonderful job of describing what Anne would have experienced regardless of the current status of the site, enabling the reader to form a clear mental picture. Where possible, the authors highlight key things to see at each site and provide background information to each site and the evidence of Anne’s visit. I particularly enjoyed the section following the route of Anne’s Coronation Procession through the streets of London. I could picture the wonderful scene and plan on following the route myself one day.

The only downside of this book is that I now have a huge list of places I need to visit! Some of the places listed I have been to already, but now I feel the need to visit again with this wonderful guidebook in hand in order to view it through the eyes of a Tudor Queen.

For any reader interested in old castles, palaces and houses or in Tudor history, this book is an absolute must! Thank you to the authors for sharing your travels and research with me – can I join you on your next adventure please?! ( )
