A spotlight exhibition examining the many sides of Katharine of Aragon, a Queen who won the hearts of the English people, and their king.

Find out about Katharine of Aragon’s eventful life, her Spanish royal family, her marriage to Prince Arthur, her faith and intellect and, of course, her marriage to Henry VIII.

The centrepiece of the show is a beautiful reproduction gown hand stitched by Prior Attire using natural fabrics appropriate for the period. The garment is based on descriptions of one of Katharine’s own outfits.

Katharine of Aragon was buried at Peterborough Cathedral in January 1536.
