This is a very beautiful palace which was initially owned by Henry VIII, and then was extended by William III and Queen Mary II.  This also has a beautiful garden and one of the oldest and famous garden maze (didn't take a picture as it was just a high bush from the pictures ^_^).

Where to eat?
The cafes in the palace can be so crowded so you can just prolly skip this and go for cafes/ pubs outside.

King's Arms Hotel

Just right outside the maze is the King's Arms Hotel (old as 1709).  An old pub where you can grab good drinks and food. (you can see the gate as seen in the picture above)
