Hampton Court Castle near Leominster is an often overlooked gem.

No connection to Hampton Court Palace, this intriguing building dates back to 1427 and has seen it's fair share of eccentric owners over the past 600 years!

In this talk I will tell audiences about the building itself and it's previous owners especially those who have shaped the way the castle looks today.

From a Medieval Knight to an American Billionaire, Hampton Court Castle has had some of the most extreme owners of any historical building and they have all left their mark. Once seen never forgotten...but how much of it's history do you dare to uncover?
