Hampton Court Palace is a royal palace in south west London.It has not been lived in by the British royal family since the 18th century and 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.
The following century, William III's massive rebuilding and expansion project intended to rival Versailles was begun. Work halted in 1694, leaving the palace in two distinct contrasting architectural styles, domestic Tudor and Baroque.
