At the Stade de France, the Bataclan, in the cafes and restaurants of Paris... on Friday 13th November, terrorists killed and wounded many innocent people. And in doing so, they also aimed also to kill these places that we love, places which represent culture and a spirit of sharing.
We at WorldEventListings share the grief of the friends and families of the victims of the terrorist attacks of 13th November 2015. And we offer our unconditional support to all the cultural venues affected.
Our raison d'être has always been to share cultural information with as many people as possible. We will continue. We will win. Their failure is only a matter of time.

Description

Grand Tudor royal palace.

This former state palace was originally built for Cardinal Wolsey in 1514, and was later occupied by the royal family up until the reign of King George II and the death of Queen Caroline in 1739.

Enjoying an artistic and historical heritage of the highest order, this monument fully justifies its prestige: it was built to rival Versailles, and is part Tudor and part Baroque in style.

Hampton Court Palace holds many surprises for visitors, who can explore the Tudor kitchens, admire Andrea Mantegna's painting The Triumphs of Caesar, the royal chapel, the flower gardens and the majestic maze there.

One of the highlights of the visit to Hampton Court Palace remains the discovery of Great Hall, the last medieval English hall, which is decorated with a tapestry from this period which tells the story of Abraham. Nestled in Henry VIII's apartments it served as a theatre stage and occasionally saw performances by Shakespeare's company in the seventeenth century.
