Hampton Court is an iconic Royal Residence, palace and park complex attracting visitors from all over the world. The huge labyrinth of living quarters is considered one of the most complex and mystical in England, attracting those who are interested in architecture, folklore and history.

The Residence was home to Henry VIII who moved there with his then wife, Anna Boleyn (later executed), where he began building a new dwelling. According to legend, the King was the prototype of the French folktale character, Bluebeard; a violent, wealthy man who murdered many wives save one, who attempted to avoid the same fate as her predecessors. In contrast to its troublesome inhabitant, the interior halls of the Palace are pleasantly cheerful with its walls decorated with colourful paintings and elegant collections of antiques from around the world.

Worth noting is the indoor tennis hall built in the 18th century (a sport already popular at that time) and is now considered to be the oldest tennis court in the world. The architecture of the Residence is also to be admired, since there is a unique intertwining of both medieval and Italian renaissance styles and the beautiful gardens and marble sculptural compositions uniquely frame the palace. The eerie history continues into the park where visitors have often seen the foggy ghost of an elderly clothed woman (as is evidenced by video footage), however her identity is yet to be discovered.
