Want to see our five star exhibition but can’t make it to London?
Step back into a dangerous world of plots, espionage and treachery without stepping out of your front door. This digital tour takes you through our exhibition for a fresh and revealing look at the extraordinary relationship between cousins Elizabeth I and Mary, Queen of Scots.
Over half an hour, curator Andrea Clarke leads you through letters and speeches, items of jewellery belonging to each queen, a wall-hanging embroidered by Mary during her imprisonment, and models of Elizabeth and Mary’s tomb effigies from Westminster Abbey, where the queens finally rest.
