Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Hampton Court Palace, A308, East Molesey KT8 9AU England

There is so much to see at Hampton Court! The main attraction is Henry VIII’s palace including his magnificent Great Hall, the vast kitchens and the eerie Haunted Gallery where the ghost of one of Henry’s wives has taken up residence; but there is a second palace at Hampton Court, that built for William III. A ceremonial staircase leads up to William’s state apartments where there is a huge collection of weaponry, exquisite furnishings, a couple of optical illusions and some very peculiar etiquettes! There is the real tennis court and usually someone is either practising or playing a match so it is possible to see this fascinating game in action. As well as the palaces, there are 60 acres of beautiful gardens to explore including the great grapevine, the largest and oldest productive grapevine in the world. When the tour has finished, you might want to find your way to the middle of the world famous Maze!
