Lauren + Adam’s Travel Diary

Saturday, 28 Apr 2007

Location: Hampton Court Palace, UK

MapAdam and I headed out of London to visit the beautiful Hampton Court Palace, once home to Henry the Eighth and famous for it's beautiful gardens. We had always wanted to go especially Adam because of the famous maze. We didn't realise it was quite so close to London - it only took us abotu an hour to get there. We had a lovely day. As you can see in the photos the sun is shining and it is quite a warm day. We enjoyed looking around the many rooms of the castle decorated in the style of years gone by. The gardens we just beautiful and we cracked the maze in uder 15 minutes. Adam was a little disappointed with the maze - apparently it used to be alot bigger. We went out for dinner in the nearby town of Richmond which is on the outskirts of London. It is set right on the river Thames and we had a lovely wander along the river. Everyone had come out to sit in the sun on the bank of the river to drink and have picnics. It really was a lovely sight to see.
