Hampton Court Palace, England


This evening, I am reporting on top visitor attraction, Hampton Court Palace on the banks of the River Thames which lies about fourteen miles S.W. of London.

Hampton Court Palace is closely associated with King Henry VIII of England. Cardinal Wolsey (Henry's administrator) presented Henry with the Palace in 1525. This was a red brick Tudor palace. Subsequently, baroque style additions were completed in the late 17th century. This extensive building includes:

  • The Wolsey Rooms
  • Henry VIII's Apartments
  • The chapel Royal
  • West Front
  • Base Court
  • Clock Court
  • Fountain Court
  • Kitchens
  • William III's Apartments.
  • Queen's Staircase.
  • Cumberland Art Gallery.
