So when reading about Hampton court recently, I became curious as to where in the castle Anne and Henry would have slept, their royal apartments. I read that their apartments had been demolished sometime in the 17th century ( 1600s ) but didn’t get any further then that….does anyone know why they were destroyed? And what was made in their place? And where the new apartments now are? I would love to know. Thanks

Anne Boleyn’s Royal Apartments were built on top of what was once the Palace’s Moat. The foundations eventually began slumping into the moat. A new inner wall was added to support it. The apartments were eventually flattened in the late 17th century when new, more modernised rooms were built, and their foundations remain covered underneath.
The rooms are now used for the Royal School of Needlework. They are located at the very back, and off to the left of the Palace.
You can just about see the floorboards if you look through the window from the Palace Gardens. Right below those floorboards, the foundations to Anne Boleyn’s Royal Apartments remain to this day. xxx
