Wish I had seen this before I visited Hampton Court,
This review is from: Secrets of Henry VIII's Palace: Hampton Court (DVD)I have actually been to Hampton Court. I went on a day tour that took us there on the Thames. It was a guided tour and it was great. HOWEVER, I wish I had seen this first! This excellent 60-minute history and "tour" of the castle and its grounds gave so much more history and secrets, if you will, than I learned actually being there. For me, the main draw of the place is the cache of Henry VIII and Cardinal Woolsey. To walk on surfaces that they trod literally took my breath away. Nevertheless, so many of the fascinating tidbits in this documentary were left out during my visit.
Whether you have been, plan to go (a MUST before your trip) or daydream about going to Hampton Court, this dvd will give you lots of information and glorious images.
What I wouldn't give to go back, look up and see the handcarved "eavesdroppers" in the rafters! Maybe one day I will do just that.
