Historic Palace

Hampton Court Palace is a royal palace in the London Borough; it has not been inhabited by the British royal family since the 18th century. The palace is located 18.8 km south west of Charing Cross and upstream of Central London on the River Thames. It was originally built for Cardinal Wolsey, a favourite of King Henry VIII, circa 1514; in 1529, as Wolsey fell from favour, the palace was passed to the King, who enlarged it.
