    A great historical treasure. Get the train direct from Waterloo. The gardens and maze are free. Plus cross the river for some decent places to eat.

    The audio tour is informative. The guards in each room can tell you a lot that isn't on the audio.

    They don't let you eat the meat the show you being roasted - instead you have to eat from the worst cafeteria in the UK.

    A Tudor palace, or something close enough. It has been expanded and modified in different eras and styles that now it does not resemble any specific style, but it was henry the 8th so ..

    Gardens; stray far from palace for a quiet picnic. Get the audio tour. Wear a cape! Excellent play acting, not cringe worthy. Get a year pass if you live close for summer outings for all 5 palaces.

    ヘンリー8世の王妃ジェーン・シーモアは1537年にハンプトン・コートでのちのエドワード6世を出産したが、12日後に死去した。彼女の幽霊は、いまだ宮殿の階段に頻繁に現れるといわれている。同じくヘンリー8世の妃キャサリン・ハワード、彼女の幽霊も宮殿に現れ、時々ロング・ギャラリーの廊下で悲鳴が聞こえるといわれる。他にアン・ブーリンの幽霊や、悪名高いヘンリー8世自身の幽霊が現れるという報告もある。
