Hampton Court Palace

Set in Surrey on the edge of London, Hampton Court Palace can be found near the River Thames. Famous as the home of King Henry VIII (he of the six wives and many beheadings), the magnificent palace building is made up of two different styles: the Tudor palace of Henry VIII and the more modern Baroque palace of William III, dating from the 17th century.

Henry spent much time hunting here, which led to the area being bestowed with parks, including the palace's 700-acre home park, Bushy Park across the road and the huge Richmond Park nearby. Deer still abound in the area and these days enjoy a more peaceful existence.

Travelers can wander through the State Apartments and into royal bedrooms and galleries, visit the beautiful Chapel Royal and see the medieval Great Hall. There are also 60 acres of gardens on site, ranging from the kitchen garden to formal landscaped gardens, rose gardens and a still-bountiful grapevine that was planted in 1768.

Practical Info

Hampton Court Palace is only 30 minutes by train from Waterloo Station in central London (exit Hampton Court Station). Then it's a short walk across the bridge over the Thames River. Essential things to see are the Hedge Maze, the Great Hall and the Chapel Royal which has been in continuous use for 450 years. Helpful red-coated guides are everywhere and happy to tell you all about the palace while making sure you keep your hands off the valuable furnishings.
