Mary I and Elizabeth I enjoyed staying here, Elizabeth called it her “warm nest for my old bones”. She installed the newly invented flushing toilet here, met Sir Francis Drake after circumnavigating the globe and died here in 1603. It’s fate came under Charles I reign and the English Civil War, but luckily for us the Outer Gate House and The Wardrobes are still visible for us to see today. See them at the start of your Royal Deer Park Bike Tour and Hampton Court Palace Bike Tour and the end of our Ale Tasting Bike Tour.
