Hampton Court 2012

Hampton Court 2012

The Hampton Court trip in February was one of the highlights of my year!  The castle was beautiful and it was amazing to think that famous kings and queens, such as Henry VIII, Mary I and Elizabeth I actually walked on the stone tiles that I too was walking on.

The palace was stunning.  There were so many rooms that you could look into and each room had a history.  My favourite was the room where guns and weapons were used to make patterns on the walls.  You could walk all around the castle and also see where Catherine Parr and King Henry secretly got married.

The gardens were enormous and one of the most beautiful things I have ever seen.  It was a really amazing trip and I only wish I could have stayed longer and that Mr Shaw had turned up in a Wolsey costume!
