Hampton Court Palace is one of the most prestigious venues in the country, home to some of the most important royals in history, but chiefly associated with Henry VIII. The majestic riverside palace is actually two palaces: Henry VIII’s grand Tudor palace, solidly built and lavishly decorated and the more elegant baroque palace built later for William III and Mary II, offering a variety of magnificent settings full of character and history.
