With the prospect of the Tudor dynasty dying out after his death, Henry VIII decided to do something about it. What he did would have political repercussions for centuries to come, and would oppress the consciences of many of his subjects, some of them even unto death.

This tour explores sites in the City of London connected with the establishment of Henry VIII as Supreme Head of the English church. It was a time fraught with burnings and beheadings, with cruelty and betrayals. But it was also a defining moment in England’s emergence from subordination to established European powers.

Meet outside the Blackfriar Pub, opposite Blackfriars Station.

The walk will take approximately 2 hours, and finishes near Barbican Underground Station. For information on travel, please use Transport for London's Journey Planner.
