Sometimes you read the weather and see that it is going to be 75 degrees, so you throw on a dress and leave your jacket at home. Sometimes it turns out to be windy and overcast instead. Turns out in London, "sometimes" ends up being everyday. Luckily, Hampton Court Palace was able to distract me from that fact that I am never able to learn from my clothing related mistakes.
Boasting 999 rooms (because 1,000 is too many, duh), Hampton Court was once the home of King Henry the Eighth. To say it is obscenely large is an understatement, especially since it is surrounded by a huge garden designed by Queen Mary herself. We even went through a hedge maze she commissioned, and I only took one wrong turn before following my classmates to the middle.
