Hampton Court Castle

The 15th century Hampton Court Castle (pictured above) surrounded by 1000 acres of stunning parkland, pasture and woodlands with the river Lugg running alongside predates Hampton Court Palace by some 80 years. There is a legend associated with this wonderful castle, and it concerns a painting depicting the Coningsbury Hound. It is said that tragedy will befall the owner of the castle if it is taken down.
