Hampton Court Palace

HamptonCourtgriffin

This was one side of the entryway into Hampton Court. For those of you who don’t know, Hampton Court was Henry VII’s favorite residence and many of the dramatic moments chronicled in recent popular novels by Phillipa Gregory take place here, as well good chunks of the Tudors. (or at least I assume…haven’t watched it…it should…) This royal residence is kept up very carefully and there are lots of things for visitors to do. While we were there, there was a living history scene that took us through several parts of the castle. That was a lot of fun! The banqueting hall in particular is set up to be interactive and informative.

Here is a link to the official website. If you are interested in Hampton Court Palace take a look at this video about the building itself and its history.
