Hampton Court Palace is one of the most-visited royal palaces in England and is located in Richmond Upon Thames, London. It was originally meant for the Cardinal Thomas Wolsey, who began construction of the magnificent palace. Later, the palace came to be occupied by King Henry VIII and his six wives. Tales and legends, haunted corridors, and architecture that is a pastiche of the different eras of England’s monarchs make Hampton Court Palace a microcosm of England’s history. 

 

Today, Hampton Court Palace draws millions of visitors each year who wish to walk the steps of Kings and Queens, enjoy a pleasant saunter along the palace gardens, and experience the looming presence of the Tudors. A ‘royal pleasure palace’ owing to the nights of revelry and merrymaking in its halls, Hampton Court Palace was the King’s playground and banquet for parties, events, and a grand court life. Each hall and wing of the palace is unique as you experience the baroque apartments, later commissioned by William of Orange in the 17th-century, with their brooding interiors.

 

A trip to London is incomplete without visiting Hampton Court Palace. You might want to be careful as the ghost of Catherine Howard, Henry VIII’s fifth wife, is said to haunt the corridors of the palace begging for mercy. The rich history of the palace continues to the Elizabethan era with Shakespeare’s plays and on to the publication of King James’ Bible. Through these glimpses into a rich and diverse past, this 500-year palace is a place where worlds meet over time.
