Hampton Court Palace, London

Hampton Court Palace
Today's post is inspired by The Tudors television series. This (not entirely historically accurate) portrayal of Henry VIII and Thomas Wolsey led me to visit Hampton Court yesterday.

Wolsey spent lavishly to build the finest palace in England at Hampton Court, which he was later forced to give to Henry as he began to fall from favour.

Yesterday, after escaping from Hampton Court maze, I shot some video footage in the formal gardens (free for visitors from November to March).
