Henry VII at Micklegate Bar

Henry VII at Micklegate Bar

Details

Micklegate Bar, the iconic royal gateway of the City of York, invites you to discover The Henry VII Experience.

Explore the life of the first Tudor King as he created a new era in English History, after defeating his rival Richard III.

Experience his early years as an exiled Lancastrian heir to the throne, who roamed the land gaining support and praise, eventually ruling the country!

Discover his impact on the city of York, as it continued to prosper throughout his reign, with interactive experiences and displays dedicated to the life of the Tudor King.

For a more gruesome look at Henry’s past, step into our Tudor camp, where grisly facts about the Tudor times written by ‘Horrible Histories’ author Terry Deary await to be discovered. Learn the life of this iconic royal, in the very Gateway where his enemies’ heads were spiked.
