Manufacturer’s Description: This puzzle features a range of photographs of Hampton Court Palace, taken from the archives of Historic Royal Palaces, who are responsible for the maintenance and upkeep of this extraordinary site.
Review: This jigsaw depicts several photos of the beautiful Hampton Court Palace, merges together to make a really visually interesting picture, and an enjoyable puzzle to solve.
With every purchase supporting Historic Royal Palaces, this jigsaw does a bit of good, too. They look after some fantastic historic buildings including the Tower of London and Kensington Palace, whilst depending on the support of their visitors, members, donors, sponsors & volunteers.
As with all Ravensburger puzzles, the soft click technology and individually shaped pieces means you know when you have got the right piece in place, and there are no problems with improperly cut pieces or other quality issues. I always know that a Ravensburger puzzle is going to be well made, and this is no exception.
The image on the puzzle is really interesting, featuring an intricate clock face, gardens, a maze, statues, the exterior of the palace – and more! There are challenging areas and it is definitely going to take some time to complete. I will add a photo of the finished puzzle when I manage it!
Included in the box is an information sheet with more information about the different pictures on the puzzle, and it is fascinating to read. There is also a picture of the puzzle which is really handy as a reference when you are putting it together.
With 1000 pieces, this puzzle measures 70 by 50cm, which means it fits easily on a pretty standard size jigsaw board.
5 stars for this lovely jigsaw.
