Silent Sunday: Historical scandal

We went on an outing to Hampton Court Palace today, home to more than 500 years of fascinating history and King Henry VIII’s favourite royal residence (literally dragging ourselves away from the Olympics coverage on the TV). This advert made me smile – how fun, I thought, to hear scandalous tales about mistresses and misdemeanours that can’t be told during the day and how similar, I mused, does the Baroque court sound to life on a Dubai compound?

For age 18+ only, the tour tells risqué stories that aren’t suitable for younger visitors – and you get a glass of champagne too. Sounds pretty mummy-friendly to me!
