Hampton Court Palace was built by Cardinal Wolsey, starting in 1514, although some time in the 1520s it became the property of King Henry VIII.

The Lion Gates are at the Bushey Park entrance to the Palace. The gates were made for Queen Anne, and her initials are engraved into the columns. The wrought-iron gates may have been made by Jean Tijou, a French artist, and are more recent than the pillars; they might on the other hand have been designed by Sir Christopher Wren. Jean Tijou did make the wrought-iron screen in the Southgardens, in approx. 1694.

Hampton Court Web site is rather pitifully constructed, made by people who assume that everyone runs Microsoft Windows and using frames in such a way that they get low rankings in search engines and you can’t bookmark individual pages. But if you persist, and hit Cancel when the JavaScript debugger comes up for every page, you can get the address and other information.
