Tranformed into a magnificent palace by Cardinal Thomas Wolsey,(c.1514) a favourite of King Henry VIII, it was passed to the King when Wolsey fell from favour. It was rebuilt and expanded in the following century, by King William III and was intended to rival Versailles - resulting in two distinct contrasting architectural styles, domestic Tudor and Baroque.

The palace, maze and gardens are all open to the public.
