Retrace the Final Steps of King Charles I on a Self-Guided Audio Tour

Retrace the Final Steps of King Charles I on a Self-Guided Audio Tour

Back in the 1600s, Londoners would gather to witness a very particular form of public entertainment.

This self-guided audio tour charts the life and death of this ill-fated king, taking you to some of London’s most famous and iconic sights including: • Henry VIII’s hunting lodge-turned-royal palace • One of London’s most picturesque royal parks, once home to an elephant • The abbey where all kings and queens have their coronation • The ancient hall where Charles I was put on trial • Henry VIII’s favoured jousting ground • The remains of what was once Europe's largest palace This walking tour can be enjoyed on location or even virtually at home with VoiceMap's Continuous Play function which disables the GPS playback.
