Hampton Court Palace

We managed to leave the apartment relatively early today so we would have plenty of time at Hampton Court. 

It was a really nice day for it, and not insanely crowded. The audio tour was free so we grabbed little handsets and wandered around. 

We were pretty much ready for lunch by the time we got there so we stopped for a snack before we got too invested. 

The kitchens

A Henry VIII sighting

This fountain is for wine. Seriously. And they still occasionally fill it up for special events. 

The Great Hall

Some of the flowers in one of the gardens. 

And I got a rare chance to take a picture without people in the way because we were there close to when they closed. 


  1. Beautiful pictures. I love all the old buildings. Glad you're having fun. Hi to Tom

  2. Isn't it amazing how BIG everything was? Wow.

    1. Well, it wouldn't be Henry VIII if it wasn't completely huge and ostentatious! :)

  3. i love all the pictures! makes me want to go visit :)
