Winchester Palace in London was the home of Bishop Henry de Blois, brother of King Stephen. Mostly destroyed by 1814 fire but still attracts mentionable tourists
Winchester Palace is the largest and most important building in all of medieval London. Although mostly destroyed by fire in 1814, the remains were part of the Great Hall, which formally stood alongside the south bank of the Thames. The gable wall of the hall has doors which led to the buttery, pantry and kitchen, and it has a magnificent rose window.
This Palace was founded in the 12th century by Bishop Henry de Blois, brother of King Stephen. It was built to house the bishops in comfort when staying in London on royal or administrative business.
