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.
