Hampton Court Palace

A well-known curiosity of the palace's grounds is Hampton Court Mazeplanted in the 1690s by George London and Henry Wise forWilliam III of Orange.[36] The maze covers a third of an acre and contains half a mile of paths. It is possible that the current design replaced an earlier maze planted for Cardinal Wolsey. It was originally planted with hornbeam; it has been repaired latterly using many different types of hedge.
