I am taking a quick opportunity to blog my usual My Fair London post with one eye on the television, completely riveted to the Royal Wedding!! Kate Middleton looks a.m.a.z.i.n.g, very Grace Kelly-esque! I know anything I blog about is going to be a little under-whelming compared to the glitz and glamour that is unfolding but here goes anyway! Today I bring you one of my very favourite palaces, Hampton Court Palace (also hailed as one of King Henry VIII’s favourites). The first site of the building always awes me – the monstrous red brick Tudor building with its dramatic turrets and chimney pots! The interior is equally impressive, with a contrast between the simple Tudor elements and more elaborate Baroque decorations. Since I am still a big kid at heart, I must admit that my favourite part of the palace is the maze and the fact that the palace is said to be very haunted! We usually pack a little picnic lunch and spend the day wondering around the palace and snacking in the beautiful gardens! Hope you enjoy the rest of the wedding festivities, I’m off to do some shopping while the shops are quiet!!
