24 September – Hampton Court Palace

In Lancaster Trip on October 1, 2008 at 10:09 pm

We went to Hampton Court Palace today. It took 2 buses and a boat to get there. The first bus was an experience. This woman started yelling at the driver to slow down because she was falling over. He stopped the bus and yelled back ‘If you don’t like my driving you can get off my bus’. She then called him a cheeky sod, which he responded to with ‘and you’re a cheeky bitch’. Best intoduction to British buses ever.

Hampton Court is amazing. We got lost a couple of times. It’s just so big. As are the rooms – the sheer scale of the Chapel Royal and the dining halls is mindboggling. It’s just a pity they don’t allow photos in those rooms.

The gardens are also pretty amazing. They’re so perfect. It could have been better weather, though. I got absolutely soaked.
