England’s Fountain Folly

Hampton Court Palace

 

If you are going to live like a king, you may as well opt for the most lavish and indulgent of all—Henry VIII. The English monarch knew no limits when it came to fulfilling his most elaborate of desires—which included the construction of free-flowing wine fountains. Now, visitors to Hampton Court Palace in southwest London can sip like royalty from a 13-foot fully working replica, which runs with red and white wine on weekends and bank holidays—just like Henry wanted it! The design was inspired by two fountains depicted in the Field of the Cloth of Gold painting on display at the palace. Note: The Wine Fountain is located in Base Court, which can be taken over for VIP events by contacting Jo Jennings ([email protected]; 011-44-020-3166-6530).
