Secrets of Henry VIII's Palace

Step inside the historic Hampton Court.

Hampton Court is the ultimate royal pleasure palace, embodying an indulgent and grandiose lifestyle built by Cardinal Thomas Wolsey and furthered by King Henry VIII. Its many rooms chart Henry VIII's decline from fit young warrior to bloated womanizer, and they tell the vivid stories of the ladies who became his queens. Later, King William III and Queen Mary II commissioned Sir Christopher Wren to rebuild Hampton Court, demolishing half of the red brick Tudor palace and replacing it with an exquisite Baroque castle, making Hampton Court one of the most unique palaces in the world. Secrets of Henry VIII's Palace digs beneath the brick and stone to unveil an abundance of art and lore that bring Hampton Court to life.

Hampton Court Palace
Review by A R. on 07/17/20 review stating Hampton Court Palace
Very informative. Very historical to Henry VIII reign. What a huge palace this is and to think that it was built in Medievil times. I can recommend this vid.

camera work
Review by Redshoesgirl on 07/17/20 review stating camera work
the horrid camera work completely distracts from this broadcast. panning wide-angles - same scene, from left to right and then right to left. with all that glory there should have been something more.

WOW
Review by Joe on 07/17/20 review stating WOW
While in London for 6 weeks I saw the London Eye, Courtauld,, Victoria and Alberts, Stonehenge, Grennwhich, Trafalgar Square, the Tate, St. Pauls, the Tower of London and many more. Hampton Court was my favorite. If you are not sure you want to go or not watch this DVD and you will want to go. If you are going make sure you see this first. I watched this 2 days after visiting Hampton Court. This made me want to go back and visit it again to see the things I had missed.

Having been a fan on The Tudors I found this piece fascinating. It was informative and did not jump around like some documentaries do.

Hampton Court Palace, Fit For A King
Review by Jo A. on 07/17/20 review stating Hampton Court Palace, Fit For A King
The Tudors are a special interest of mine for many reasons, especially Henry the VIII and his daughter, Elizabeth the I. Hampton Court is a fascinating place, not only visually but the intrigues and politics make it even more special. The DVD brings it to life and you can almost feel as though Henry is still in residence waiting to make his appearance. Its very special to be able to see this palace and hear the stories of what took place within its walls. Wonderful experience!

Interesting Tour of History
Review by Rioricosally on 07/17/20 review stating Interesting Tour of History
I enjoyed the tour and the history of Hampton Court because I love anything to do with the history of the kings and queens of England. I did expect a bit more for the price but was satisfied with the sixty minute presentation.
