Henry VIII sure had a decent pad — it's a long way from a shoddy studio flat in Croydon. Originally built for Cardinal Wolsey, Henry later seized the palace for himself, and he should think himself lucky... there aren't many homes in London as cool as this. The palace features beautiful landscaped gardens, a maze, tennis courts, and the largest grape vine in the world — who wouldn't like to live here?
