Wessex Network: Visit to Tudor House and Garden
Following the success of her two talks on ‘Medieval Southampton’ and ‘Tudor Southampton’, Katie Belo dos Santos is now offering a ‘live tour’ of the Tudor House and Garden, depending on lockdown restrictions. The Tudor House is one of the most important historic buildings in Southampton. It reveals over 800 years of history in one fascinating location at the heart of the Old Town. The timber-framed building facing St Michael’s Square was built in the late 15th Century, with King John’s Palace, an adjacent Norman house accessible from Tudor House Garden, dating back a further 300 years. Tudor House gives a unique and atmospheric insight into the lives and times of both its residents through the years, and of Southampton itself. It appeals to visitors of all ages and interests, who find the family-friendly activities, interactive technology and fascinating displays a winning combination.
As well as being a qualified guide, Katie is a freelance interpreter, translator and lecturer. She is a member of ITI Wessex and a FITI. Her languages are English, Portuguese, and Spanish.
