5.0 out of 5 stars Evocative and magical
This wonderful book brings Hampton Court to life. It's detail is fantastic, while the style makes it feel approachable for everyone. Having had the delight of meeting Lucy and being given a roof top tour of Hampton Court by her, I can honestly say her genuine passion for her job comes through in her writing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent introductory history of Hampton Court Palace, 12 May 2012

This review is from: Hampton Court Palace: The Official Illustrated History (Architecture New Titles) (Paperback)
After the disappointment of buying Thurley's much more expensive rival 'architectural and social history' of Hampton Court (lavishly produced and illustrated but barely any social history: a strange combination of coffee table looks and reference book text, with much detail of archiectural building expenses but very little on the Palace's extraordinary political and social history), it was a huge relief to find this book: engagingly written without being patronising, and genuinely introducing the relevant political, social and architectural history.

A awesome little book detailing the greatest Palace in the UK. And at a fraction of the cost of a brand new copy!

5.0 out of 5 stars Dr Lucy Worsley, 10 July 2014

This review is from: Hampton Court Palace: The Official Illustrated History (Architecture New Titles) (Paperback)
Although Lucy is now curator of Royal palaces all her books and tv appearances are aimed at a very large audience and very well explained without talking down to you. Well worth buying all her books and no I'm not related to her just an admirer
