A long journey on the tube and train started the day off today. Hampton Court Palace was our first stop. Hampton Court Palace is located outside the center of London and is known as a place where different royals used to go and stay during their reign. Today the palace is known for its garden maze and huge flower area that was commissioned by the queen. Inside the palace, there are a lot of different apartment areas that were set up for different kings and queens. One of the most known kings to stay here is King Henery the 8, who has a large area dedicated to him in the Palace. When walking through, visitors can see how it used to be set up when it was in use. The Hampton Court Palace is very big and you can easily get lost in it, but is a pretty cool place to visit while in London. When we finished seeing Hampton Court Palace we decided to head to the London Zoo. This is a great place to visit if you are in London. The zoo is well set up, beautiful, and holds a ton of different animals. At the zoo we got to see giraffes, penguins, zebra, lions, leopards, butterflies, tons of different birds, and much more. The zoo was our last stop of the day. Check in for the next day of adventures.
