Take a step back in time at Hampton Court Palace
Though the Hampton Court Palace hasn't been a residence of the Royal Family in over 300 years, the building still has a rich history. Henry VIII originally constructed the palace for a friend but later regained the grounds in 1529. In the next century, William III undertook a refurbishment of the palace that would never be completed.
As a result, the Hampton Court Palace stands as an oddity amongst royal British buildings, as it has features of both the baroque and Tudor architectural styles.
Today, Hampton Court Palace features an art collection from the palace's heyday, as well as many original furnishings and a fully stocked armoury of antique weaponry. The palace chapel has been praised for its intricate stained glass and cornicing as well.
