Overview

A fabulous new short break taking us to the wonderful Hampton Court Garden Festival. The original Tudor Hampton Court Palace was begun by Cardinal Wolsey in the early 16th century, but it soon attracted the attention of Henry VIII, who brought all his six wives here. Surrounded by gorgeous gardens and famous features such as the Maze and the Great Vine, the palace has been the setting for many nationally important events such as this and it makes a suitably impressive venue.
