Henry VIII's Astronomical Clock told the Tudor Court everything they needed to know - the times, the tides and the future! Here State Apartment Warder Susan Rowe tells us why it is one of her favourite things - and explains what it tells us of the 16th Century view of the world. You can see longer versions of these 'A few of my favourite things' talks live at the palace throughout the year - visit www.hrp.org.uk for details. A film by Tim Powell at Historic Royal Palaces.

+Marlon Sorken Don't confuse flat earth with earth-centric universe. This clock was made after Columbus discovered the New World, so they were perfectly aware that the earth is spherical.

I share your fascination with this clock and enjoyed learning more about it. Seeing the clock up close, including the works was very interesting.
