Description - What to expect

Take a tour from London accompanied by a professional guide and visit Hampton Court Palace, built in 1514. The flamboyant Tudor monarch, Henry VIII is most associated with this majestic Palace. He lavished money on fabulous tapestries and paintings, housed and fed a huge court, and pursued a succession of wives, political power, and domination over Rome. However, the elegance and romance of the palace owe much to the Baroque buildings created by Sir Christopher Wren for the joint monarchs William and Mary at the end of the 17th century.

There is so much to see at Hampton Court! A ceremonial staircase leads up to William's state apartments where there is a large collection of weaponry, elegant furnishings, and several optical illusions. As well as the palaces, there are 60 acres of gorgeous gardens to explore including the famous grapevine, the largest and oldest productive grapevine in the world.
