In today's programme, Sarah talks to the renowned architectural historian, and ex-curator of Hampton Court Palace, Jonathan Foyle, about Wolsey's Hampton Court; its early origins, the renaissance principles guiding Wolsey's plans for his grand country home, and how more than the fair share of credit is given to Henry VIII for the creation of this magnificent Tudor building!


Sarah also chats with fellow Tudor blogger, Deb Roil from The Tudor Times about her favourite Tudor place to visit - Knole, in Kent.
