Hear the crackling of a XVI century fireplace and smell the scent of the burning wood, Step back in the Tudor time! The Tudor dynasty was marked by Henry VIII’s break with the papacy in Rome and the beginning of the English Reformation, which, after turns and trials, culminated in the establishment of the Anglican church under Elizabeth I. The period witnessed the high point of the English Renaissance.

Find yourself face to face with Henry the VIII and other illustrious inhabitants of the palace like George I thanks to the amazing performances of the actors.

Discover the interests and extravagances of the aristocrats in the XVIII century: dresses, tapestries, ball-rooms, maze, flowers, tennis, chocolate…
