Hampton Court Palace




"Henrich VIII"



Hampton Court Palace has grown from humble beginnings in the 11th century to one of the finest palaces in the world.
Over 800 years of history can be explored through this magnificent palace whose previous owners include Cardinal Wolsey,
Henry VIII and his daughter Queen Elizabeth I.

Hampton Court Palace was a royal residence from the 1520s when King Henry VIII took over its development from Cardinal Wolsey.
In 1689, Sir Christopher Wren demolished large parts of the Tudor alace and began building a new palace for King Wiliam III and
Queen Mary II.

In 1838, Queen Victoria opened the gardens and state apartments to the public free of charge.
