Whitehall was once the largest palace in Europe; comprising 1,500-plus rooms over 23 acres – larger than Versailles or the Vatican. It was the main residence of British monarchs from the 1530s until it was destroyed by fire in 1698.
Numerous nation-changing events happened within its walls; the execution of Charles I; births, deaths and marriages of Henry VIII; Stuart mistresses (and male ‘favourites’); the first performance of Othello; the collection of art by Rubens, Michelangelo, Holbein, Raphael and Da Vinci; and many more. Whitehall’s status as the seat of political power today is directly linked to these origins of royal power.
The Lost Palace will be a new visitor experience, opening summer 2016, allowing us to tell these stories as ‘history where it happened’ for the first time. Combining new historical research and high quality creative content it will enable site-specific experiences of this lost history – enabled by digital technology and linked together in compelling, dramatic narrative routes.
We want people to sense these lost spaces and encounter the characters that once inhabited them: to immerse themselves in the stories of these Tudor and Stuart worlds. We want to turn today’s ‘Corridors of Power’ into playful spaces where history is performed and participated in.
The Lost Palace is being developed in two main phases:
- Development of prototypes for the Lost Palace and audience testing: February – July 2015
- Development of first public version of the Lost Palace: August 2015 – July 2016
This site is about the first of these stages.
About Historic Royal Palaces
Historic Royal Palaces is the independent charity that looks after the Tower of London, Hampton Court Palace, the Banqueting House, Kensington Palace, Kew Palace and Hillsborough Castle.
Our aim is to help everyone explore the story of how monarchs and people have shaped society, in some of the greatest palaces ever built.
Each of the five royal palaces in our care has survived for hundreds of years. They have witnessed peace and prosperity and splendid periods of building and expansion, but they also share stories of more turbulent times, of war and domestic strife, politics and revolution.
We raise all our own funds and depend on the support of our visitors, members, donors, sponsors and volunteers.
