If you are a fan of the Tudors Dynasty this post might interest you.
Let us step back in time and follow the world of King Henry VIII, Cardinal Wolsey and Oliver Cromwell at this world known historic palace, Hampton Court.
Some of the things you can see at Court are the beautiful Tudor Kitchens, the Great Hall – that still preserves the décor and immense dining table – and the Chapel Royal.
Surrounding the castle, you can get lost in the beauty of the gardens, the Great Vine, and, literally lost in the Maze.
Englishmen are known for being fond of their lawns and one of the key attractions at Hampton Court are the beautiful gardens. The eccentricity and perfection of the flowers draws you immediately in, and, if you let your imagination play, you can almost feel the magic of history!
Over 750 acres of royal parkland are boasting with sparkling fountains and gracious displays of over 200,000 flowering bulbs and there is no better place at Court to have a picnic and relax.
There is though a rumour that circulates across the Palace.
The ghost of Catherine Howard is believed to frequent the Court’s Haunted Gallery where she was dragged back screaming to her rooms while under house arrest, being accused of adultery by King Henry VIII. Have a look around, and you might just hear the Screaming Lady!
Hampton Court offers a delightful experience into the immense world of Tudors: galleries, bedrooms, paintings, sculptures, everything you can imagine a Royal household can have, you’ll find it here!
You can even take a cape and stroll around *feeling royal*

Take my word for it, it is an amazing place to have a day out and enjoy cultural richness!
