Henry VIII replica wine fountain unveiled

Breaking News

A wine fountain similar to those used by Henry VIII has been unveiled at Hampton Court Palace.

The working replica was created after the remains of a 16th Century fountain were found during an archaeological dig at the London palace in 2008.

The 13ft (4m) fountain, made of timber, lead, bronze and gold leaf, stands on the site of the excavated fountain.

It will run with red and white wine at weekends and on bank holidays, carrying on the tradition started by Henry VIII.
