London Places To Visit Hampton Court Palace.

The flamboyant Tudor monarch, Henry VIII is most associated with this majestic Palace. He lavished money on fabulous tapestries and paintings, housed and fed a huge court and pursued a succession of wives, political power and domination over Rome. However, the elegance and romance of the palace owes much to the Baroque buildings created by Sir Christopher Wren for the joint monarchs William and Mary at the end of the 17th century. 

The palace is set in 60 acres of formal gardens and more than 750 acres of parkland.
