Henry VIII's Crown of State!
A recreation of Henry VIII's crown - worn by subsequent monarchs and not seen since it was melted down by Oliver Cromwell - is on display in the Royal Pew at Hampton Court Palace 10:00-16:00 (12:30-13:30 on Sundays). Please note that as it is in the Royal Pew, the crown will not be on display when there are additional Chapel services (i.e. weddings or funerals). See our special announcements
page for information about any known services.
