Jennifer and Jeff picked us up at the hotel about 10. Drove to Hampton Court.
Impressive gardens. Built for [Cardinal Thomas] Wolsey originally taken over by Henry VIII. Well appointed chapel. Large hall – centre hearthstone for open fire, wood panelled walls where all the people had a feast. King sat on slightly raised dias.
Lunch in self serve cafeteria.
Drove to Ham House on the River Thames. Afternoon tea on the lawn. Jennifer fed the squirrels.
Back to Jennifer’s for tea.
