Though originally built by the greedy and scheming Cardinal Wolsey, Hampton Court was appropriated by Henry VIII, who became the palace’s most famous resident. The walls are dripping with Italian, German, and Flemish Renaissance art, and the amazing gardens contain not only one of the most elaborate labyrinths in England but also the world’s oldest living vine, which, at 250 years old, is still producing 500 pounds of black grapes each year. If getting lost in the labyrinth doesn’t give you enough of a fright, wander into the Haunted Gallery. In 1542 Henry had his fifth wife, Catherine Howard, imprisoned in her apartments here before her beheading at the Tower of London. She escaped her rooms one day and ran down to the chapel, where Henry was at Mass, and her ghost is said to recreate this desperate run, often screaming, even today. Take a seat in London.
