    Book details


Welcome to Hampton Court Palace, home to some of Britain's most famous kings and queens and the setting for many great events during nearly 500 years of royal history. Viewed from the west, Hampton Court is still the red brick Tudor palace of Henry VIII (1509-1547); from the east it presents the stately Baroque facade designed by Sir Christopher Wren for William III (1689-1702). The sumptuous interiors reflect the different tastes of its royal residents and are furnished with great works of art, many still in the positions for which they were originally intended. Hampton Court Palace, with its beautiful gardens and extensive parkland, set by the riverside, is both visually and historically enthralling. A walk around will intrigue, amaze and delight.

    Although I visited Hampton Court twenty-five years ago, after recently reading books on Henry's wives by Fraser, Weir and Starkey along with several individual biographies of the wives and children I was eager for another tour. If an "in person" trip doesn't materialize, the guide book will provide the next best thing.Reading the descriptions of what I presume is a self guided tour, I almost expect to cross paths with the young Elizabeth en route to share with her proud step-mother Katherine Parr the results of her latest scholarly endeavors.This is a high quality guide. It may not have the larger scope of a "coffee table book" but it does instill a sense of having actually toured this treasure of a building.
