Visit Hampton Court Palace, Gardens in London UK and Learn the History of Henry 8th and His Wives

Image
After visiting Hever Castle, we decided to visit Surrey, one of the wealthiest regions in the UK. Hampton Court Palace is located within M25 in Surrey next to the River Thames to the south west of London.

I googled and found out that Hampton Court Palace is a good place to visit; The English King Henry VIII (1491- 1547)was crowned there and it was his residential Palace where his six wives lived 500 years ago. So why not continue our journey to find out a little bit more about the history of this controversial king...

Kent is called the Garden of England and as we were admiring the beautiful country scenery while we were driving we could understand how it got this title.

We drove around the same area again and again at least three times and then we suddenly found a sign pointing the direction to Hever Castle. We decided to give up on our original plan and visit Hever Castle instead.

It was almost 4 o'clock in the afternoon, but there was still a big queue of people to get into the castle, it seems the castle is very popular and it was open till 6pm. The castle is set in beautiful and spectacular surroundings and has many gardens, fountains and beautiful water fea…

I went to the Property Investors Network (PIN) in London last night in the Cumberland Hotel in Marble Arch. This is a monthly meeting hosted by Simon Zutshi who owns a multi-million property portfolio and internet businesses as well as providing property seminars and mentoring courses in the UK. Dolf De Roos is one of the world's most successful multi-millionaire property investors and is a Rich Dad (Robert Kiyosaki) advisor. 

He was invited to give a short presentation . He is also a famous author having published 14 books including the New York Times best seller Real Estate Riches, this is one of the best property books that I have ever read. I was so excited, as this was my first time meeting him.
Dolf is a world class speaker, he also speaks at the Trump University which was founded by Donald Trump. Even though his speech was short (one and a quarter hours) I found it interesting and fascinating. You can tell he is a very experienced and serious investor, but he was also very wi…
