Kimbolton Castle

Kimbolton CastleThe castle went through various phases of ownership until, by the 1520s, it belonged to the Wingfield family. The medieval castle was rebuilt as a Tudor manor house, parts of which survive. Catherine of Aragon was sent here for refusing to give up her status or deny the validity of her marriage.

Westminster Hall

Westminster HallAnne Boleyn’s lavish and magnificent coronation banquet was held in 1533. Over 80 dishes were served during the festivities and one can only imagine that Anne, six months pregnant, must have been exhausted but also overjoyed at having finally attained the ‘mystique of monarchy’ .Westminster Hall was also the setting of Thomas More’s trial where he was charged of High Treason for denying the validity of the Act of Succession.

Tower of London

Tower of LondonAnne Boleyn stayed on the eve of her coronation in 1533- at the peak of her career. It is also where she enjoyed a number of coronation celebrations and feasts with her husband, Henry VIII, prior to her coronation. In complete contrast to the days prior to her coronation, the Tower is also the setting for Anne’s incarceration and execution. In a terrible twist of fate, Anne Boleyn spent her final days and darkest hours in the same apartments that had played host to lavish celebrations and revelry only three short years before. Also the burial place for some other very famous Tower prisoners including: Catherine Howard, Jane Grey, Sir Thomas More and Bishop John Fisher.
