1.0 out of 5 stars Hampton Court Palace 12 Aug 2009
Hampton Court Palace

This book is loosely written, photographs are out of date, and text too colloquial for most serious readers, and yet it was only published as recently as 1998.

By G. Walters - Published on
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
this book is NOT about hampton court palace, it is about the people 'behind the scenes' who run the place; reminds me of a national geographic dvd about the day-to-day running of a tourist trap. if you want a book that shows you the palace and gardens, buy another; this just 'ain't it'
