The Tudor period spanned the reigns of five monarchs, from Henry VII in 1485 to the death of Elizabeth I in 1603.

The term ‘Tudor’ conjures images of iconic black and white timber-framed buildings, low beamed ceilings and picturesque lattice windows. Films such as ‘The Other Boleyn Girl’ and ‘Elizabeth, the Golden Age’ hark back to an era of romantic palaces and dazzling mansions.

The Tudor period marked an age of prosperity, money from expanding trade, and the gift of land to Royal favourites enabling them to build lavish houses.
