Secrets of Henry VIII's Palace

Hampton Court is the ultimate Royal pleasure palace -- it embodies the indulgent and grandiose kingship built by Cardinal Wolsey and developed by Henry VIII. Through its rooms you can chart King Henry VIII's decline from fit young warrior to bloated womanizer. You can also retell the vivid stories of the ladies who became his queens. Later, William and Mary would move to Hampton Court and demolish half of the Tudor palace to replace it with an exquisite baroque palace, making Hampton Court one of the most unique palaces in the world. A true palace of pleasure and now a now thriving tourist location, we scratch beneath the brick and stone to unveil an abundance of art and stories that bring Hampton Court alive.
