Scandal, Murder and Intrigue: an irreverent history of British Monarchy

For twelve centuries the monarchy has reigned over England, providing stability, good governance and national unity. Or at least that’s what they’d like you to think.

Join us as we journey through a thousand years of the cruelty, gluttony, drunkenness, lust and treachery of the English monarchy, from Kings whose appetites for food, wine and women almost bankrupted the kingdom to the murderous reign of Tudor monarchs who ruthlessly butchered anyone who stood in their way. We’ll hear about the King who became transfixed by Hitler and the Nazis and an heir to the throne who was widely rumoured to have been Jack the Ripper.


  • - Learn a side of British history that is in equal parts horrifying and hilarious.
  • - Hear the stories that you weren’t taught at school.
  • - Amble through the most beautiful parts of Royal Westminster.
