Photo Gallery: Hampton Court Palace and Covent Garden

Christina Knight | June 15, 2018

Hampton Court Palace was the big destination on Day 6 of WLIW’s To the Manor Born tour. One of the royals who lived here was King Henry VIII – and his six wives. You may know the story of Henry and his unfortunate wives from the docudrama series Secrets of the Six Wives. After a few hours of touring the historic rooms and exhibitions and gardens, we drove on to London to explore the Covent Garden area.

As your home for the best British dramas and comedies, WLIW’s travel program takes you to the seaside villages, historic castles, and baking challenges you know so well on the To the Manor Born Tour.
