Thrilled to announce that Tracy Borman will be presenting the second season of Hampton Court: Behind Closed Doors, airing on Channel 5 this evening!
An intimate look behind the scenes of King Henry VIII’s favourite palace and country retreat on the Thames. A Tudor jewel, in a usual year Hampton Court Palace now receives over a million visitors.
In this series we’ll be getting up close and personal with the palace warders as they take us into the vast kitchens, the palace archives, secret nooks, hidden crannies, spectacular gardens and vast estate. Tune in to witness the gardeners as they attempt to put on the largest tulip festival ever staged in Britain, and see how the curators keep the palace’s rich history alive today, from dealing with an incredibly rare new discovery relating to Anne Boleyn to revealing how an Indian encampment was set up at Hampton Court at the end of World War I.
