hampton court palace

one of the best things about having visitors is the chance to be a tourist in your own backyard. at the end of our italy trip, my parents spent a few days with us in london, and we took them to hampton court palace.



the palace tour was interesting - they have tried to make it interactive - and they even pump stew aromas into the kitchen to make it seem more authentic.


my dad wanted more information on the astronomical clock in the front courtyard. anyone know about it?


i was more impressed with the immaculately groomed gardens...


...and the "mushroom village" topiary.


following in the spirit of british summer, s and i joined e and her colleagues for twelfth night at the open air theatre in regent's park on thursday. if music be the food of love, play on... highly recommended.

and i had pimm's with my burger tonight. roll on, wimbledon!
