A Royal Route through Regal London


Hampton Court Palace, built by King Henry VIII 500 years ago, is a fantastic example of Tudor extravagance and royal wealth.

Sir Christopher Wren almost doubled its size during the late 1600's for King William & Queen Mary, creating a royal residence of baroque opulence and grandeur.

It was expanded again 50 years later for the Hanoverian monarchs (the Georgians). There's a lot to see here and it's all good.

Is it spectacular? Beautifully featured? Grandly furnished? Jammed packed with art and treasures and full of history? Of course it is. It's a Royal Palace!

The drive back to central London takes an hour.

The Royal London Tour, during the afternoon, covers the Royal City of Westminster: Buckingham Palace, St James's Palace, Westminster Abbey and other Royal Highlights.
