The Tudors: Passion, Power and Politics

"A sumptuous exhibition and beautifully curated. I will return for a second visit. Wonderful!" Exhibition visitor

Discover the conflict, scandal and secrets of the Tudor monarchs. This once-in-a-lifetime exhibition, in partnership with National Portrait Gallery, tells new stories about one of the most dramatic times in British history.

Featuring around one hundred objects with almost seventy works from the National Portrait Gallery, the exhibition showcases portraits of the five Tudor monarchs, Henry VII, Henry VIII, Edward VI, Mary I and Elizabeth I, alongside other iconic figures, including Thomas Cromwell, Mary, Queen of Scots, and William Shakespeare. 

Some of the items displayed have never been shown outside of London, including the Westminster Tournament Roll. Produced in 1511 to celebrate the birth of Henry VIII’s son with Katherine of Aragon it features African court trumpeter John Blanke. Another highlight is the Bacton Altar Cloth, the only known surviving garment from Elizabeth I’s wardrobe.
