What you'll do

` Fantastic experience. Learnt so much about what is hiding in plain sight! ' Mark, Discover Hidden Sites Guest I will take you on an interactive walk through beautiful hidden gardens very near the usual tourist sites but rarely visited by most tourists. Firstly we will hear about the sensational story of 19-year-old Katherine Howard, Henry VIII's fifth wife who was executed for adultery. Discover scandals and court plots that make Game of Thrones seem dull! * Secondly, we will learn about Jonathan Tyers `The Maker of Dreams ' and owner of the Vegas and Disney of the 18th century. Discover how Jonathan became wealthy and inspired generations of wealth creators! * Thirdly, we'll see the home of the suffragist Millicent Fawcett, whose house entertained 19th century feminists, bohemians, and radicals. Discover how Millicent changed the world! Finally we will look at how the stories of Katherine, Jonathan and Millicent are all about your values and how you choose to interpret their time on earth!
