Hampton Court Palace
Located just on the edge of London, a visit to Hampton Court Palace will transport you from the hustle and bustle of the modern city to the Tudor era, where history and intrigue awaits. Gifted to Henry VIII in 1528, the King installed giant kitchens, equipped to feed at least 600 people twice a day, and a Great Hall in which to eat, drink and be merry. Your private guide will take you around the palace, showing you the majestic Great Hall where the Tudor court was entertained and where Shakespeare once performed. You'll also see the impressive Armoury, the French-style additions of William III, and out in the beautiful gardens, the UK's oldest maze.
