    Well preserved, well maintained place which has some amazing artwork adorning the ceiling which apparently was brought all the way from Belgium. One typically would spend about an hour here. There is a documentary to view first, enlightening people of the history behind this place along with an audio guide which is provided free of charge with the ticket. Entry fee applicable. Credit cards accepted but not Amex.

    Had no idea about this place but when I purchased the Historic Palace Membership for Hampton’s Court, it was one of the six Palaces that I could visit for free with my membership. I highly recommend buying the membership if you are planning on doing the Tower of London/Hampton’s Court/Kensington Palace since they membership cost as much as an entry to two Palaces. You also receive special membership access to after hours. It’s very small, just one big room but laying on bean bags while watching a gorgeous ceiling and listening to history of the room and palace is a nice way to spend a couple of hours.

    It’s free to view a couple times a year and also if you’re an HRP member. It’s just one large hall so doesn’t take long, but the Rubén’s parings are incredible and it’s such a historic spot.

    This is what remains of Whitehall Palace which burnt down in 1698. The hall itself looks quite plain and then you look up at the ceiling! Ceiling painting was quite common at the time but this is a very impressive example of it. There are bean bags in the hall to allow you to lie back to look at the ceiling in its entirety.

    A must see (and listen to the guide) when in London. First time since I first came to visit London, 34 years ago. The ceiling by Peter Paul Rubens, is something to behold and the remarkable history of the building very interesting. Could do with the non original bland walls being restored.
