Tour of Salisbury Cathedral via Zoom

George du Pré, who is a Guide at Salisbury Cathedral, will lead a virtual tour of the Cathedral via a PowerPoint presentation. The tour will cover the floor of the main part of the Cathedral including the Chapter House, the roof space and some areas not normally open to the public. It is hoped that the Cathedral will re-open to the public on May 17th, so this presentation will be a good introduction to a visit in due course. This event is open to all ITI members and is free of charge.

Visit to Tudor House and Garden, Southampton @ 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.
