Hampton Court Palace

With 500 years of royal history, Hampton Court Palace has something to offer everyone – from the magnificent State Apartments of Henry VIII and William III to the world-famous maze in 60 acres of immaculate riverside gardens. This living tapestry of history was remodelled by Cardinal Woolsey in 1515. By the time the palace was finished in about 1540, it was one of the most modern and magnificent palaces in England.
