What a country we live in! Amongst the traffic, the high prices, you find Hampton Court, home to royalty since 15 hundred and something. As it has been added to severally by various monarchs, a whistlestop tour takes over 2 hours.

Impressive even with one tower covered during renovation in a massive picture of the man himself - see photos.

Fine exhibition on Henry VIII's early life. Excellent, truly excellent audio tour - I listened to the children's one, which I'm sure is better than the formal adult one - really brought the place to life. Lovely grounds, and in winter free access to the deer park behind.

The famous maze is a bit disappointing - very small. Quite why it is famous, I couldn't say.

Go. Go soon, and not just once.
