December 3, 2021 The Royal Manor of Woodstock: Pleasure Palace and Doleful Prison

This episode of The Tudor History & Travel Show takes us back to a misty Autumn day when I headed over to Blenheim Park and Palace in Oxfordshire. Today a fine baroque building stands on a site that was once home to The Royal Manor of Woodstock, a medieval and Tudor hunting park. The manor provided lodgings for royal progress, and was the site of Queen Elizabeth's imprisonment before her ascension to the throne. Join me as I explore the site of this lost royal palace.

 

There is a blog page here detailing more about how the palace looked during the Tudor period and my surprising discovery related to the place of Elizabeth's imprisonment.
