Young Henry VIII exhibition

Hampton Court Palace is the home of Henry VIII.

Explore the fascinating early years of Henry's reign by taking either a real - or a virtual - tour of the Young Henry VIII exhibition. Discover the monarch who, as a vibrant, handsome man, excelled at all he attempted, whether it was charming European ambassadors, flirting on the dance floor or beating rivals on the sports field.

Enjoy a taste of this innovative exhibition before you visit. Move through the rooms to discover more about the stories, the paintings and the Tudor Palace. Meet young Henry VIII, his queen, Katherine of Aragon and his trusted minister, Thomas Wolsey.
