Summary

South-west London's Hampton Court is the ultimate royal pleasure palace, embodying the indulgent and grandiose kingship built by Cardinal Wolsey and developed by Henry VIII. Home to Henry's court in the 16th century, it holds many secrets and scandals of his reign. William and Mary later demolished half of the Tudor palace to replace it with an exquisite baroque structure, making Hampton one of the most unusual palaces in the world, and now a thriving tourist location.
