A year at Hampton Court – in pictures

It’s been a year since I got rid of the photos cluttering up my phone, and so ‘a year in the life of Hampton Court’ seemed like a good topic for a picture post.  It’s inevitable, if you work at Hampton Court, that you just can’t stop taking pictures of the place, and then you’re not sure what to do with them all!

    Lovely photos! Visited Hampton Court last Thursday and we had great weather; they filled the Wine Fountain and gave out glasses of wine so we could all toast 500 years!

    What a wonderful place Hampton Court is. There are few places that give me goosebumps any more but it ranks with the Vatican Museum or any place with anything by Michelangelo di Lodovico Buonarroti Simoni. Take great care of it…we lovers of Hampton are around every corner.

    I love Hampton Court and simply do not get there nearly often enough. It is very special and a particular sort of place.

    Don’t know why but the photo of Ann Boleyn’s Arch stirred me. Especially as I’ve not even been to England let alone Hampton Court. One day I will 🙂

    Beautiful! Oh to see it in person, someday… Thank you so much for satisfying the constant cravings of a middle aged American Anglophile! I’ve always believed that I was born in the wrong place, at the wrong time.

    Really lovely photos. I am quite jealous of your job. I love watching your special. I can only see them on You Tube for the time being, but I watch them over and over learning something new each time. Thank you for helping to make history fun (and funny). Great job!
