According to historian, Dr. Lucy Worsley, the most the average person seems to know about the Georgians is that there was 'the mad one, the bad one, the fat one, and the sad one.' Surely these kings were more memorable than that?

The Georgian period last seventy-six years, from 1714-1830, but this fascinating era of history often gets overshadowed by our interest in the Tudors and the Victorians. Worsley wants to change that, and seeing as 2014 is the three hundredth anniversary since George I took the throne, what better time to curate a fully comprehensive season of exhibitions.

With a whole range of talks, tours, interactive learning, and family activities, The Glorious Georgians comes to life across the Historic Royal Palaces of London.
