Ghost Tours at Hampton Court Palace

Most historic sites require a fair amount of imagination to fill the gaps between a few artefacts and famous events long gone. But at Hampton Court Palace you can stand in the very rooms where Henry VIII eyed up the ladies and Charles I was kept prisoner.  It would be a waste, then, to only visit the palace by day, when there are 500 years of nighttime tales to be told, too.
