A self guided trail exploring Winchester's Tudor history.

Over 500 years ago, in 1485, Henry VII became the first king of the Tudor royal family. Winchester was favoured by a succession of Tudor monarchs, hosting a royal birth, christening and later wedding. The Winchester district is a showcase of buildings, ruins and artefacts that played a part in this extraordinary period of regal history. 

Learn the stories behind the Arthurian Round Table in the Great Hall and the Tudor ceiling in the Westgate Museum. Follow in the footsteps of Henry VII when you visit the ruins of Winchester Castle, step into Winchester Cathedral and you are entering Queen Mary's wedding venue.
