Former palace of King Henry VIII, the magnificent Hampton Court provides the historic backdrop for a short home movie about a school outing. Travelling by train, the group of primary age children from Bexley arrive with clip boards in hand and are lead round by their eye-catching teacher who sports a fiery red trouser suit. Naturally, fun is had by all in the UK’s oldest surviving yew hedge maze.
