Hampton Court Palace in the London Borough of Richmond upon Thames.  It has not been lived in by the British royal family since the 18th century.  It was originally built for Cardinal Wolsey, a favourite of King Henry VIII, in 1514.  In 1529, when Wolsey fell from favour, the palace was passed to the King.  In the following century, William III's massive rebuilding and expansion project intended to rival Versailles was begun.  Work halted in 1694, leaving the palace in two distinct contrasting architectural styles, domestic Tudor and Baroque.  While the palace's styles are an accident of fate, a unity exists due to the use of pink bricks and an, albeit vague, symmetrical balancing of successive low wings.  The palace is open to the public, and is a major tourist attraction.  It is cared for by an independent charity, Historic Royal Palaces which receives no funding from the Government or the Crown.  The flowers are spectacular.
