Photographic postcard view of the exterior of the King's Room at Godolphin House, circa 1934, before restoration. Originally the Great Chamber, The King's Room, in the west wing, features a finely carved doorway created in 1604 for the marriage of Sir William Godolphin to Thomasine Sidney. The future King Charles II is reputed to have stayed here before fleeing in exile to the Scilly Isles and France in 1646. Photograph by A H Hawke of Helston.
