Hampton Court

Last weekend, I ventured to Hampton Court Palace. After living in London for four years, I was quite surprised with myself that I hadn’t visited this great attraction yet.

Hampton Court Palace is a royal palace in the London Borough of Richmond upon Thames; it has not been inhabited by the British Royal Family since the 18th century. It was originally built for Cardinal Thomas Wolsey, a favourite of King Henry VIII, circa 1514; in 1529, as Wolsey fell from favour, the palace was passed to the King, who enlarged it.

The palace is beautiful and really easy to get to. Inside the palace you can appreciate the beautiful decor and whilst outside step back and appreciate the architecture which is really spectacular.

I recommend walking around the beautiful garden, water features and getting lost in the maze. Visiting the palace is a great activity for all ages.
