Hampton Court Palace

The Tudor era was a period of phenomenal building in England with elaborate palaces, such as Richmond, Nonsuch and Hampton Court and the huge country houses such as Longleat and Hardwick Hall, some of which can be seen today. In addition to constructing buildings, the Tudor monarchs, peerage and gentry added to and modified existing buildings from earlier eras. Some buidlings, such as the Tower of London have been constructed and added to in every century from William the Conqueror to the modern era. Below you'll find the history and images of some of the buildings and towns that have a relationship to Tudor history. (Titles that aren't currently linked are "in progress").
