... Hard to believe that it was all here so long ago.
The King even had his own chocolate chef and chocolate kitchen.......a wee bit jealous.
There were so many rooms in the Palace. Hard to believe you would need them all.

... There were a lot of interesting exhibits including one where you followed the life of Henry VIII through his six marriages. We saw the massive kitchens, still in operation, that were used during Henry's times. The outside of the palace is filled with plenty of different gardens, all of which had beautiful trees and flower arrangements. We even saw an Orange Tree in one garden and the palace has it's own vineyard.
