Hampton Court Palace
Hampton Court Palace
King Henry VIII's magnificent Tudor palace. Although most of the palace was remodelled in the reign of William and Mary, much of the Tudor palace, including the Great Hall and kitchens, have survived. Elizabeth I almost died here of small pox in 1562.
Queen Elizabeth I extended Hampton Court Palace, as she did other royal residences, and this picture shows where the Elizabethan Palace meets the modified palace of William and Mary.

Home of the Sidney family. Sir Philip Sidney, courtier and poet, spent a lot of his childhood here. His parents were Sir Henry Sidney, Lord President of Wales and Ireland, and Mary Dudley, sister to the Queen's favourite, Robert Dudley, Earl of Leicester. Mary was famously disfigured by small pox after nursing the queen, and afterwards retired from court.
Scenes from the acclaimed BBC series Elizabeth R were filmed here.
