‘A treasure trove of facts and details’ (Robin Maxwell)

‘This book literally takes the reader on a trip to all the places that played a part in the full, but fatally short life of one of England’s most famous queens’ (The Good Book Guide)

‘This book is definitely one of the few “must haves” for Anne Boleyn enthusiasts’ (Lucy Churchill)

Format: Hardcover
Take a historical tour of 16th Century England through the eyes and experiences of one of the best known individuals of the Tudor era. Each place that Anne Boleyn (the unfortunate 2nd wife of King Henry VIII), would have visited is included. I was astonished at how many places! The great thing about this book, though, is the chronological organisation of each entry. Rather than presenting a piecemeal coverage of those places that Anne Boleyn would have experienced, it organises them around her life story, so there is an ongoing narrative present through the book. Having said that, things are divided up into helpful sections, for instance part 1. Early Years, Part 2. The Courting Years, and so on. AB's time spent during her youth in France - and though much of this has, by necessity, to be speculative, is also covered.

Even though a good many of the buildings are no longer as they were in AB's time, or else have completely vanished, the authors do a great job at `reconstructing' in the mind of their readers an approximation of how they would have been using historic records. Others, such as The Tower or Hever Castle are very much on the tourist map, of course, and these popular venues are treated extensively. For each site, you get notes on background and history and how the place fits in with the facts that are known of AB's life. There are over 100 photos and illustrations, with references to documents the artefacts, nearby attractions and, most importantly, visitor information so you can plan your visit. The whole book is very well designed and set out neatly and generously on the page.

This is an absorbing account of Anne Boleyn's travels in France and England during her lifetime. The book catalogues each place, gives a detailed history of what occurred there, and details about opening times etc. Uniquely, it also gives the authors' views about the sites mentioned which brings it even more to life. There are photos and maps to illustrate. Evidently a lot of research and work has gone into accuracy in this book, and it is hugely enjoyable - either to dip into or read cover to cover.

What a fantastic book - so enjoyed reading it.
The research that was done for this book is amazing as well as the attention to detail.
Love the idea that buildings that no longer exist made it into the book - with the authors description of what was once there you truly get a feel of the original building. This is a complete tour guide for any Anne Boleyn fan. This is a 'must read'.
Congratulations Sarah & Natalie - wishing you both every success with this book.

A brilliant and extremely interesting aspect to Anne Boleyn and her life. The pictures are really good and its such an interesting read! This is a book I can read time and time again and still love it! A big thank you to the authors!

This book is absolutely fantastic, it will really take you as far into the world of Anne Boleyn as you are ever going to get. Here you learn about every Palace, Castle, Stately home, Church, Abbey etc that Anne ever visited, and with as much information as possible. Many places do not survive and have been long forgotten, but this book will really bring them back to life. It is perfect not just for those fascinated by Anne Boleyn and Tudor history in general, but also for those who love architectural history as well. Personally i think it's a great shame that something like this has not been done for more historical figures as imagine how many other long lost buildings would get brought back to life. I personally cannot wait to go exploring all these fascinating places now, and to walk in the footsteps of Anne and the Tudor court.

When I first heard that this book was going to be written I have to admit that I became rather excited. To my knowledge there has not been another book written which looks at the places that Anne Boleyn visited within her lifetime. I was eager for this book as while I know about the more well-known places such as Hever Castle where she lived as a young child and the Tower of London where she spent her final days, I did not know about the lesser known places such as palaces within France that she would have visited during her time as a Lady in Waiting to Queen Claude of France or about the manors and houses that Anne visited during royal progresses.

I am happy to say that this book did not disappoint! There is such a wealth of information within this book that once I picked it up I honestly had a hard time putting it down! Sarah and Natalie give a slightly different layout of Anne Boleyn's life. Rather than writing about her life according to the different events that happened to her, the authors chart her life in regards to the different places that Anne would have lived in or visited during her years.

What I truly love about this book is the amount of information and detail that is given about each place. The reader is able to gain a wonderful insight into what the houses, places, manors etc. would have looked like in Anne Boleyn's day, where she would have slept, eaten and her happenings at each place. The authors explain why Anne Boleyn would have been at each location and approximately how long she stayed or how many visits she made. They then move on to talk about what the location looks like in modern times, if it survives, or what part of the building still stands.
