Hampton Court Palace Travel through over 500 years of rich royal history reflected in the palace's varied and stunning mix of Baroque and Tudor architecture. The winding corridors, lavish State Apartments, expansive Tudor kitchens, immaculate 60-acre riverside gardens and maze (лабиринт) together make Hampton Court the oldest surviving Tudor palace in England. From the early 1500s when King Henry VIII's lavish (щедрый) re- decoration and extension transformed Cardinal Woolsey's country seat into a palace more than fit for a king, through to 1996 when fires ripped through the King's Apartments. East Molesey, Surrey,
Oldest surviving Tudor palace in England. Hampton Court has undergone a lot of changes. In 1689 King William III commissioned Sir Christopher Wren to rebuild the palace. Thankfully, lack of money and time prevented total demolition of the building and Henry VIII's Tudor palace remains to this day - a testimony to the estate's original and most celebrated owner. The palace also houses one of the most important works of the Italian Renaissance - Andreas Mantegna's 'Triumphs of Caesar'. This formidable sequence of nine paintings is on permanent display in the Lower Orangery.
Hampton Court Palace No trip to Hampton Court is complete without a visit to the world's oldest and largest vines, a stroll around the glorious formal and informal riverside gardens and a tour around the world-famous trapezoidal maze - part of William III's Wilderness Garden and the oldest surviving hedge maze still in use. A revolutionary audio installation brings the maze alive for visitors. Using fragments of music, snatches of laughter, the seductive rustling of fine silks and snatches of covert conversations the audio installation brings to life an age when the maze symbolized an opportunity for secrecy.

Buckingham Palace England's most famous royal palace, and the official residence of Queen Elizabeth II, opens the doors of its State Rooms to the public every summer. Originally acquired by King George III for his wife Queen Charlotte, Buckingham Palace was increasingly known as the 'Queen's House' and 14 of George III's children were born there. On his accession to the throne, George IV decided to convert the house into a palace and employed John Nash to help him extend the building. Queen Victoria was the first sovereign to live in Buckingham Palace (from 1837). The State Rooms are now still used by the Royal Family to receive and entertain guests on State and ceremonial occasions. Visitors can admire some of the more unusual gifts received by the current Queen, including drawings by Salvador Dali, an embroidered silk scarf from Nelson Mandela and a grove of maple trees.

Frogmore House A mile south of Windsor Castle lies Frogmore House, one of Queen Victoria's favourite retreats. Originally acquired by Henry VIII in the sixteenth- century, the estate of Frogmore now forms part of Home Park in Windsor. The current house was originally built between 1680-1684 but was extended when George III bought it for his wife Queen Charlotte in 1792. Charlotte used Frogmore as a country retreat and held receptions and masques in the gardens. Following the death of her beloved Albert, Queen Victoria chose a site here for his mausoleum (tomb) just days after his death (1861) but it was not completed for another 10 years. Queen Victoria insisted that the interior of the mausoleum was decorated in the style of Raphael, whom Prince Albert considered the greatest artist of all time, and she held a regular ceremony there on the anniversary of his death (14th December) until her own death in January 1901 when her body was placed next to his.

Palace of Westminster Now more commonly known as the Houses of Parliament, the Palace of Westminster began life as a royal residence in 1042 under Edward the Confessor. The major structure to survive various fires, Westminster Hall, was built between 1087-1100 and is one of the largest medieval halls in Europe with an unsupported hammer beam roof. During the 14th century the hall housed shops and stalls selling wigs, pens and other legal equipment and the courts of law met there. Thomas More, Charles I and those accused of trying to blow up parliament (1605) were all tried in Westminster Hall.
The Westminster Palace and Abbey are unique architectonical masterpieces
Big Ben Sir Charles Barry was responsible for the mock gothic building that has become such a familiar landmark today; including the Clock Tower that houses Big Ben, the bell that chimes on the hour, and is home to the largest clock face in the country.
The House of Lords Chamber Following a fire in 1512, Henry VIII decided to abandon the palace and from this moment onwards it became home to the two seats of parliament - the Commons and the Lords. However, it was to suffer from another disastrous fire in 1834 and everything was lost except Westminster Hall and the Jewel Tower. A competition was launched to redevelop the whole site. Members of the public can watch debates when Parliament is in session. You don't need tickets in advance, but may have to queue.
