In this episode, we visit one of my favourite Tudor places in London: the Charterhouse. Once a prestigious religious institution, its history embraces piety, bloodshed, triumph and treason as men of God, and men of power came and went, shaping not only its history but the very fabric of the building. The Charterhouse is off the Tudor trail, tucked away in a quiet garden square, with many people unaware of its existence. For an on-location tour, join me and our Charterhouse guide, James, as we explore this wonderful historic building with some of its original medieval and Tudor structures still intact.

In the Footsteps of Mary, Queen of Scots: Part 4: Edinburgh Castle with Donal Ferrie and an ‘Audience with Marie Stuart’

September 26, 2020

PART FOUR: Edinburgh Castle with Donal Ferrie and 'An Audience with Marie Stuart'

 

This month sees the launch of a special celebration of the life of Mary, Queen of Scots, here, on The Tudor Travel Show. Throughout September, I will be publishing one episode a week, as I follow 'In the Footsteps' of this legendary Scottish queen, visiting some of the most historic locations associated with her time in Scotland. Along the way, I will be meeting up with local guides, (many are members of the Marie Stuart Society), who will share their knowledge and passion for Mary and her story.

 

In this week's episode, I travel back to Scotland's capital city, Edinburgh. In the first half of the episode, I visit the castle with our guide for today, Donal Ferrie. Join me as we get a private viewing of Mary's bed chamber and the closet in which she gave birth to her son, James. To see more images of the castle, join my private FB group, which accompanies this podcast, The Tudor Travel Show: Hitting the Road.

 

In the second half of the show, I am granted a private audience with Marie Stuart herself. As a friendly English Ambassador, I put some challenging questions to the Scots queen. Tune in to hear her reflections on the dramatic events crashing through her life. It turned out to be an 'interesting' conversation!

 

Thank you to all those listeners who support my work by becoming a patron of the show. I am deeply grateful as it helps me to continue to create great content.

In this week's episode, I travel to Scotland's capital city, Edinburgh. In the first half of the episode, I walk down the Royal Mile with my guide, Jerry Ozaniec, as together we follow in Mary's footsteps as she made her formal royal entry into the city after her arrival back in Scotland in 1561.

In the second half of the show, I carry on down the Royal Mile to Holyroodhouse, where I catch up again with Liz Manson, President of the Marie Stuart Society and talk about Mary's eventful life at the palace. If you want to read more about the history of Holyroodhouse and the murder of David Rizzio follow this link to read the blog which accompanies this podcast. To see more images of the palace, join my private FB group, which accompanies this podcast, The Tudor Travel Show: Hitting the Road.

In the Footsteps of Mary, Queen of Scots - Part 2: Stirling Castle with Liz Manson

September 12, 2020

Part Two: STIRLING CASTLE

This month sees the launch of a special celebration of the life of Mary, Queen of Scots, here, on The Tudor Travel Show. Throughout September, I will be publishing one episode a week, as I follow 'In the Footsteps' of this legendary Scottish queen, visiting some of the most historic locations associated with her time in Scotland. Along the way, I will be meeting up with local guides, (many are members of the Marie Stuart Society), who will share their knowledge and passion for Mary and her story.

 

In this week's episode, I travel to Stirling Castle and meet up with Elisabeth Manson, President of the Marie Stuart Society. Together we explore the royal chapel, great hall and royal apartments of the castle. I talk to Liz about Stirling Castle as Mary's childhood home, as well as hearing about the blossoming romance between Mary and Henry, Lord Darnley, which unfolded at the castle in the spring of 1565.  If you wish to read more about the palace and its royal apartments, follow this link. To see more images of the palace, join my private FB group, which accompanies this podcast, The Tudor Travel Show: Hitting the Road.
