7th of September, 2016 – Hampton

We drove to Hampton and parked in to Bushy Park car park. We had a wander around the park spotting a few deer here there and everywhere. We then wandered around the Palace grounds and gardens and walked along the River Thames. Hampton Court Palace is of course famous for having the first tennis court in England and being (one of) the home of Henry VIII and later Thomas Wolsey. I had been to Bushy Park before a few times – its a great place to cycle through because it is so vast and of course picnic in.

We weren’t sure what was going on but there must have been a big cycle event on because there were road biked everywhere. We sat at Five At The Bridge Cafe across the road from the palace and had a nice drink that was really reasonably priced, and watched the bikes go past.

Henry VIII seems to have lost some weight 😉
