IN THE FOOTSTEPS OF KINGS
Imagine stepping through the courtyards of Hampton Court Palace at dusk and feeling the weight of English history on your back. Or walking in the gardens in the early morning frost and seeing them as Henry VIII did. The Georgian House in the palace precincts comes with the right to wander in the public rooms of the palace by day as well. The house has a private walled garden; the kitchen is a huge blocked arch, once the royal cooking hearth. And all the shows and pantos of London are on the doorstep. The price? £2,732 for five nights for up to eight people from December 30, through The Landmark Trust.
