Hampton Court Palace was the residence of King Henry VIII from 1529. Later kings extended the palace and gardens, particularly King William III in the late 17th century. The palace is situated on the River Thames in Richmond, only 30 minutes away from London by train. It is a popular tourist attraction and a very interesting day excursion.
