5.0 out of 5 stars A must-read for anyone interested in Anne Boleyn and/or historic places, 16 Sept. 2013
This review is from: In the Footsteps of Anne Boleyn (Hardcover)
In the Footsteps of Anne Boleyn is described as "the visitor's companion to the palaces, castles and houses associated with Henry VIII's infamous wife" and it really is just that. Unlike a normal guide book, it does not sort the places into geographical areas, although there are useful maps at the beginning to show the areas covered, it examines the places in relation to the chronology of Anne Boleyn's life. Sarah and Natalie give a detailed guide to each place, covering things like:

- The building's history
- It's link to Anne Boleyn - When did she visit? What's the evidence?
- What Tudor artefacts the place has
- The must-see parts of it
- Nearby attractions - eg. a church with the resting places of key Tudor people
- Visitor information - Where to find it etc.

There is nothing left of some of the places Anne Boleyn knew and visited, but die-hard Tudor history fans will still enjoy walking in Anne Boleyn's footsteps and using the information in this book, and sometimes old drawings/plans, to help build a picture in their minds of what used to be there in Anne's lifetime.

What I loved about this book is that it didn't just focus on the main Anne Boleyn attractions like Hampton Court Palace, the Tower of London and Hever Castle, Sarah and Natalie have looked at all the places linked to Anne, many that readers will never have heard of. I know what many British readers will be doing at weekends now! It will also be an invaluable resource for those planning a history themed holiday in the UK. Of course, you don't need to go anywhere, you can simply enjoy reading about the history of these places from the comfort of your favourite chair.

All-in-all, this book is a must-read for anyone interested in Anne Boleyn and/or historic places. Well done, Sarah and Natalie.
