The Tudor Rose


Yesterday I visited and explored Tudor Rose, a wonderful medieval city, which is described in the welcome notecard as follows:

‘In the dramatic background of the 16th century England, one woman holds the key to England’s most glorious empire, Elizabeth Tudor.  The Elizabethan era was considered to be the Golden Age.  The long reign of Elizabeth I, 1558–1603, was England’s Golden Age or “ Merry England “ in love with life, expressed itself in music and literature, in architecture and in adventurous seafaring.
The Tudor Rose represented the fusion of the Lancastrian and Yorkist noble factions.  This fusion was symbolized by the White rose of York and the red rose of Lancaster.’

It is a lovely build and the centerpiece, besides the Castle, was for me the impressive Cathedral which is so huge I could not take a picture of it! So I am guessing you will have to go see it for yourself! The only rule I found was that one is requested to dress in Medieval attire when visiting, but that adds only to the experience.
