Hampton Court Palace is celebrating its 500th anniversary during 2015 and thousands of visitors have the chance to join in the celebrations throughout the year. Special performances, haunted sleep-overs and free flowing wine are just some of the ways we can become immersed in these extraordinary centuries of history.

I spent a blue-sky day roaming the palace and its grounds; walking from the Tudor era to the 17th century and into the more recent stories of the palace’s Georgian residents and first Victorian tourists. I enjoy travelling back in time almost as much as travelling to other destinations and this was no exception. Here are just some snippets of Hampton Court’s 500-year journey:
