Hampton Court Palace
The Shire horses at Hampton Court Palace are part of the last herd of working Shire horses in London. They live in Home Park, where they also help maintain the wildflower meadows.
Each November, on Shire Horse Sunday, the whole herd is blessed by HM's Chaplain prior to Evensong.
The meeting point is the East Front Gardens at 15:00 for the blessing of the Shire horses, with Evensong at 15:30 in the Chapel Royal. All are welcome.
