Where is Hampton Court?

Who built Hampton Court?

 

The palace was built in 1515 for Cardinal Thomas Wolsey, however, King Henry VIII later claimed it for himself and enlarged the structure. Today, visitors to the Hampton Court Castle can marvel at art and furnishings from the Royal Collection, dating back to the early Tudor and late Stuart to early Georgian period. The King's Guard Chamber features a selection of arms: muskets, pistols, swords, daggers, powder horns and pieces of armour arranged on the walls in decorative patterns.

At the heart of Hampton Court Gardens is the Hampton Court Maze, planted during the 1690s by George London and Henry Wise for William III of Orange. Covering a third of an acre, it is the oldest surviving hedge maze in the UK. It takes the average visitor around twenty minutes to reach the centre but you’ll encounter many twists, turns, and dead ends along the way.

It’s perhaps no surprise that Hampton Court House and the surrounding land has been featured in several films and TV shows, including A Man for All Seasons (1966), Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides (2011), Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows (2011), and a live action film of Disney's Cinderella (2015).
