Something for the Weekend: Hampton Court Palace

Hampton Court Palace is a little off the beaten track – as London goes. You can’t reach it on the tube so I never really ventured out that way before. It’s very easily reached by car though if you’re staying west of the city.

It was a favourite palace of the Tudors and the Georgians and as such it’s teeming with history. Though it’s perhaps most famous for hosting the romance of Henry Tudor and Anne Boleyn.

The decor is a visual picnic – there’s a little bit of everything as so many royals have put their stamp on the place over the centuries.
