Homes of Queen Elizabeth I

Elizabeth was born here at Greenwich Palace in 1533

Hatfield House.  Built by Sir Robert Cecil - Elizabeth spent most of her childhood here

This oak tree at Hatfield marks the spot where Elizabeth learned she was now Queen

The Tower of London
Elizabeth lived here for a few weeks during Mary I's reign

Windsor Castle was the main residence of Elizabeth

Another main residence, Hampton Court

Hampton Court - where Elizabeth enjoyed hunting and also where she died in 1603

Thanks for the tour! I've seen some of these in person, but not all of them.

I think I like Windsor Castle the best. I love this blog because I feel like I know a lot about their homes, but haven't seen pictures.

Windsor Castle is beautiful. I got to visit The Tower of London on my trip to London in October, but I don't remember hearing anything about Elizabeth I living there.
