Lucy Worsley

Lucy Worsley

Dr Lucy Worsley is Chief Curator at Historic Royal Palaces, the charity which looks after the Tower of London, Hampton Court Palace, Kensington Palace, and other historic places. (Yes, this is a fabulous job, but no, you can't have it. Bribes have been offered, and refused.) After studying history at Oxford, she worked at a minor stately home called Milton Manor, near Abingdon, where she tidied up the archives, gave guided tours and fed the llamas. After that she became an Inspector of Ancient Monuments at English Heritage, doing historical research at Bolsover Castle in Derbyshire: this led to her first book, 'Cavalier', about a dissolute Royalist duke. Since 2003, while working at Historic Royal Palaces, she has continued publishing historical non-fiction for adults and historical fiction for 11-14 years olds. She also presents history documentaries for the BBC. Do please check out @Lucy_Worsley, or visit her on Facebook.
