Bishops Palace, Orkney

Bishops Palace, Orkney: Inside the Bishops Palace - imagining the momentous event that took place there in December 1263 when the great King Hakon of Norway died.

The frontal facade of the Earls Palace - with its array of oriel windows, corbelled turrets and elaborate entrance.

A particular attraction is the magnificent monumental fireplace in the great hall of the Earls Palace, built about 1600.
