Dan Cruickshank: Britain's Great Palaces

Join Dan Cruickshank, art historian and television presenter, as he explores a thousand years of 0British palace building.

Royal palaces are the most magnificent buildings in our history. Often built to extraordinary levels of luxury andexcess, they reveal the personalities of our kings and queens since 1066. They were places designed to impress, to express power and taste. They were often architectural pioneers – establishing fashions and providing models to emulate. They can also be supreme examples of political architecture, and part of the mechanism for holding the realm or justifying a monarch’s right to rule.
