Hampton Court Palace

Hampton Court Palace

Hampton Court Palace is a great place to learn about Medieval times in England. The palace was abandoned by the royal family over 250 years ago but the evidence of everyday life of medieval kings starting from perhaps the most famous of them, Henry VIII, has been well preserved. You will see his famous kitchen that fed over 600 people twice a day (with no modern equipment!); a separate chocolate kitchen dedicated solely to making chocolate; the oldest tennis court in England where perhaps even Henry himself hit a few balls. You can also see the private apartments of another famous English King, William III.

 

Hampton Court Palace is famous for its Great Hall which housed medieval parties and was a stage for Shakespeare’s plays during the reign of Henry’s daughter Mary. And the Chapel Royal – a beautifully decorated space where both royals and commoners have prayed for over 450 years.

 

Hampton Court Palace has one of the most beautiful gardens of all royal palaces and no wonder it is a popular spot for summer picnics! You get to see the oldest vine in the world that supplied grapes to Queen Victoria and still produces over 270kg of grapes a year. And the famous Maze which was well-documented in Jerome K. Jerome “Three men in a boat”.
