A short train journey from Waterloo out to south west London brings you to the magnificent palace and gardens of Hampton Court. Much of the palace is just as the kings and queens from centuries past would have known it, though each dynasty made its mark, and in Georgian times, rooms like Henry VIII’s bedroom were knocked down in favour of a more ‘modern’ eighteenth-century design. Beyond a tour of the royal kitchens and a run around the maze, this place offers a fascinating day out for all ages.
