Hampton Court Palace

Hampton Court Palace

Hampton Court Palace is definitely at the top of our “most magical places we ever visited” list. Although it was almost the last stop during our London trip and we arrived there quite late, it was definitely one of the best moments we experienced. Even the weather was unexpectedly warm and sunny. As you may know, Hampton Court was one of King Henry the VIII‘s favourites and one of only two surviving palaces out of the many he owned. As we are both  fascinated by the Tudor period (it was one of my fav subjects in British History classes) you can easily imagine how thrilled we were to enjoy such a wonderful place. The Tudor-style pink brick walls, together with the amazing Baroque additions and the gardens planned by Sir Christopher Wren took my breath away. I always feel like that when I visit places that are loaded with history. I haven’t visited Versailles yet, but judging by how I felt at Hampton Court, I’m sure it must be an overwhelming experience.

In case you are wondering, yes, this is a real photo. There are reenactments taking place at Hampton Court, aimed at offering a more authentic experience to the visitors, who take part in them as courtiers. It’s a must!

If you visit London and you are fascinated with history and architecture, you have to visit Hampton Court Palace. It’s just a short train ride away. Oh, and if I still haven’t convinced you, I must tell you there’s a hedge maze in the palace gardens. Another dream come true, but more about that in a future post.

    Am fost acolo, e exact ca in povesti. La intoarcere in Londra n-am mai luat trenul, am luat o barca pe Tamisa, se trece pe langa niste curti “de oameni” mai ceva ca-n povesti 🙂
    Va pup!
