I have been there. I particularly remember the chapel and the kitchen. I did not see the modern wing. It was great to go back.

The description is a bit misleading, as this focusses mostly on the Henry VIII era, and only briefly on the initial building by Wolsey and the activity (or lack of) after the end of the Tudor line. There's a lot of fascinating detail about how the kitchens would have operated.
