Hampton Court Palace Flower Show 2012 (Part 1)

By NEILMUIR1
September 9, 2012

Cardinal Wolsey started Hampton Court Palace in 1514, but when he fell out of favour it fell into the hands of King Henry VIII. It has had many changes by successive monarchs, but no member of the Royal Family has lived there since the 18th century. It is now a Historic Royal Palace and receives no government funding for its upkeep at all. Aside from the flower show, the Palace's own gardens are superb and the Tudor garden is a must.
