May 17, 2020 Eltham Palace: London’s Royal, Tudor Nursery

 In this month's episode, Sarah travels to Eltham palace in Kent, once a grand medieval palace and Tudor royal nursery. We go on a guided tour of the old palace accompanied by Jeremy Ashbee, Head Curator at English Heritage, and hear about the history of the buildings and some of the people and events associated with Eltham. There is a blog to accompany this podcast, which includes some pictures taken of the building during the visit. You can read it here.
