Enjoy a private bespoke tour of Hampton Court Palace, the home of thirteen English monarchs, with an award-winning architectural historian. Drawing on expertise built over many years working at the palace and writing about its history, I tailor my tours to your interests. I can offer an overview of the history of the palace and its most famous inhabitants – including Henry VIII, Anne Boleyn and Elizabeth I – or something more specific, such as a tour of the palace’s baroque architecture or many artistic treasures. I pride myself on providing guests with stories about the palace which are not only fascinating, but well researched and accurate! As an historian, I keep up to date with the latest research and am able to share hidden gems and aspects of the palace's history that go unseen or are commonly misunderstood.
