Tudor England in itself has become a well-known phrase that covers many aspects of the era, particularly architecture, arts and the lifestyle. What is often overlooked however is that the Tudors, whilst coming to encompass all that ...more

This is the perfect book for anyone who is interested in visiting places associated with the Tudors in Wales and/or enjoys history about the Tudors in general, from Henry VII’s 14th century great-great-uncles in Penmynydd to Henry VIII and from more well-known places like Pembroke and Harlech Castle to little ones like Ysbyty Ifan and Mold. In each entry Nathen Amin vividly describes the place, its surroundings and the role it played for the Tudors.
From reading this book it is clear Nathen Amin

If you are a Tudor enthusiast who plans a trip to Wales (like I am!), you will enjoy this book immensely. The sites are arranged geographically by region .The evocative images of of the castles, chapels, abbeys and landscapes are accompanied by descriptive text providing insight into their history and connection to the Tudors.This book transports you right back into the medieval Wales, where the Tudor dynasty was born. A must read for anyone interested in this period.

Very enjoyable book detailing a number of sites in Wales with connections to the Tudor dynasty. I'm hoping to get to Wales in the next couple of years and visit many of these places. Now on to reading more about Welsh history prior to the Tudors.

As Nathen Amin points out in this useful guide, we often hear of ‘Tudor England’ so people can be forgiven for not knowing that the dynasty has its roots in Wales. I live in Wales and have regularly visited many of the places listed but still found plenty to learn about our Tudor Heritage.

A good example is Carew Castle, which Nathen describes as ‘the largest Tudor house in Wales.’ I can remember when it was an overgrown ruin, fenced off because of the danger of falling masonry. Although the Care

The perfect book for anyone who enjoys history, the Tudor period and architecture in general. This book is packed with information on the Tudors ancestral home- Wales!! People often associate Hampton Court Palace, Richmond Palace or Greenwhich Palace with the Tudors, and whilst that may be correct for Henry VII-Elizabeth I, this books uncovers (and in many ways rediscovers), sites associated with the ancestors of the Tudors. From Abbey's to houses, to monuments and more. If you are planning a ...more
