Notes:
Historically associated with Cardinal Wolsey and Henry VIII, Hampton Court Palace and its gardens have evolved over the years. The gardens reflect both Henry VIII's original structure as well as changes in taste and design embraced by subsequent monarchs, especially William and Mary. The gardens today include features as varied as an orangery, sunken pond gardens, the Great Vine (planted in 1768 by Lancelot "Capability" Brown), and a maze. Although the site is technically located in East Moseley, Surrey, it is generally identified as being in greater London.

The folders include worksheets, photocopied book excerpts, and additional information about the palace and garden.
